Beulah Ruffin was born on December 5, 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama to the late Norman and Easter Ruffin.  She confessed Christ at an early age and was baptized at Peace Missionary Baptist Church, Pratt City. 


Beulah was educated in the Birmingham City School System where she attended McCaw Elementary School and was a 1973 graduate of Jackson Olin High School.  She also attended Lawson State Community College.

Beulah returned back to Birmingham and renewed her membership with Peace Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Major W. Burrell.  She lived in the Birmingham Nursing Rehabilitation Center where they took very good care of her for the last five years. 


Beulah was a soft-spoken person with a beautiful smile.  She loved everyone, especially children.  She loved her son, nephews, nieces and many many more.
