Beulah S. Aamot moved into eternity on the afternoon of March 15, 2018 at age 96
Beulah was born April 22, 1921 in Plaza, North Dakota, the fourth daughter of George and Maime Klemenhagen.
Beulah began teaching elementary and secondary education in 1941.
She married Karl Aamot, Sr. of Makoti, ND in 1942 and became a war bride, following Karl from camp to camp. On Karl’s return from the European Theater, they started their family in Makoti, ND.
They had three children: Randall Karl, Karl Elvin and Deborah Kay. She was blessed with 6 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
In 1956 Beulah returned to elementary education and in 1964 Beulah was selected by the State of North Dakota to receive training in the field of learning disabilities.
She was a member of the first graduating class at the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, to receive the Learning Disabilities Specialist Credential (Master’s Level).
She taught in this field in North Dakota until 1979 when she and Karl relocated to Phoenix, Arizona. While in Phoenix, she taught for another 7 years. She took great joy in teaching and in the lives of the children she taught.
After her husband’s death in 1986, Beulah moved to Sun City AZ. In 2008, to be closer to family, Beulah moved to Omaha, NE, where she lived near her daughter Deborah and son Randall.
Beulah was most proud of her husband’s war record with the 102nd Infantry Division (Ozarks). She remained a faithful member of the American Legion Auxiliary for 72 years.
Beulah loved music. She sang through her days, and also sang to the glory of God for many years in Hope Lutheran Church in Makoti, ND. She also loved to dance, and enjoyed musical cinema.
As a young girl, her father taught her to play cards well and in her later years she enjoyed bridge, cribbage, pinochle, canasta, and hearts, keeping her mind very sharp in spite of both hearing and sight difficulties.
Beulah will be missed, and lovingly remembered by her sister Sylvia Solberg, of Northfield, Minnesota; her three children: Randall Aamot (wife Joan) of Lawton, IA; Deborah Vetter (husband Kenneth) of Omaha, NE; and Karl Aamot (wife Kristine) of Sunnyvale, CA; and her grandchildren: Randy, George, Christianna, Elizabeth, Jayme, Jesse, and Tina.
Beulah was also very dear to her nieces and nephews, drawing near to each in her own special way.
