Valena Mae Beigh of Warsaw and Winona Lake passed away at 6:00 a.m. in her residence at age 93.

Valena was born on August 29, 1925 in Bremen to Forrest J. and Gladys Eva Ranstead. She was a 1943 graduate of Claypool High School. On February 14, 1946, Valena was united in marriage to Edwin Merl “Ed” Beigh in Warsaw. Together they shared nearly fifty-five years before his death on January 27, 2001.

A loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Valena loved God and possessed extraordinary faith. She also loved her family, flowers and warm weather.

Having resided in Warsaw and Winona Lake for most of her life, Valena was a lifelong homemaker and seamstress who volunteered her time to many organizations, causes and individuals. She loved life and her many years of service with the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary.

Also surviving are 19 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. In addition to her husband, Ed Beigh, she was preceded in death by four brothers and a sister.

I first met Valena Beigh because somebody in the neighborhood recommended her to do some sewing for me. She and her husband , Ed, treated me so well. I will always remember all of the different colors of thread in her sewing room. The fondest memory of Valena is when I received a recycled a sympathy card when my husband passed away this year with a note of loving words. She told me she was on Hospice living with her youngest daughter, Cathy. She said she didn't just want to sign her name on the guest book. She closed with "God Bless" and I treasure this card from Valena. I planned on coming to Trinity Church this morning, but woke up with a flu virus, and am still under the weather. She cherished her family and as time passes , may the wonderful memories bring you loving memories of the lady who helped make you the person you are today. Sincere Sympathy, Connie Ker

To the family of Valena, I'm sorry for your loss. Certainly the death of one we dearly love is very saddening. I too have experienced such heart break over someone near and dear to me. Revelation 21:4 has provided comfort for me, where is says "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore"
