FERRON - Loie Rebecca Miner Beach returned to her Heavenly Father July 11, 2002.
She was born Oct. 25, 1901 in Fairview, Sanpete County, to Melvin Orson and Mary Elnora Young Miner. In 1929, she came to Ferron to teach school. It was then she met her eternal companion, sweetheart and friend, Francis Lyman Beach. They were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple June 29, 1931. They had a happy peaceful life together for 51 years.
Loie had a long and fruitful life and she was blessed with many gifts and talents. After graduating from Brigham Young University, she taught school for 30 years, touching the lives of many students who still remember her and are as grateful for her influence as she was for their continued friendship. Loie loved music and enjoyed playing the piano, especially hymns. In her later years she so much appreciated those who came and sang and played for her. She had a gift for writing and composed much beautiful poetry, also many tributes, presentations and lessons. These have brought joy to the lives of many.
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she accepted many callings, both executive and teaching positions which she fulfilled to the best of her ability. The call she loved most was the time she spent as an ordinance worker in the Manti LDS Temple with her beloved husband. Service to God and her fellowman was her creed and she truly lived by it. She gave unselfishly of herself, her time and her means to all. Loie is missed by all who knew her. She leaves a legacy of strength from her example and her enduring.
