Beulah Mae Christopher

Beulah Mae (Fox) Christopher, 88, of Cortland, NY, went to be with Jesus and her beloved husband of 63 years, Lloyd, on Saturday, December 11, 2021, at the Cayuga Medical Center, Ithaca, NY.

Born in Cincinnatus, NY, on May 26, 1933, Beulah was the daughter of the late Clinton and Iva Fox. A lifelong resident of the area, she was a member of the McGrawville Baptist Church. Prior to her retirement, she had worked as a licensed practical nurse for Cortland Memorial Hospital for 35 years and was a member of the Retired Nurses Club of Cortland. Although she and Lloyd never had children, she always thought of her 26 nieces and nephews as her own children. Her and Lloyd loved to spend time at their cottage in Canada with their nieces and nephews where many memories were made. She was active with the McGraw Senior Citizens and with her husband, enjoyed traveling.

She is survived by a brother, Gaius Fox of Lacona, NY; sisters-in-law, Sharon Fox of Marathon, Donna Fox of Cortland; Sheila Fox of Cortland, and Debbie Fox of Quakerstown, PA; several nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Lloyd Christopher, on March 26, 2019; sisters, Sharon Fox, Dorothy Fox, Wanda Harvey, and Barbara Stanley; and brothers, Morris, Harold, Gordon, Jay, Earl, Dan, Joe, and Ira.

Funeral services will be held at the McGrawville Baptist Church on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. with her pastor, Reverend Fran Cochran officiating. Burial will be at a later date at the McGraw Cemetery. The family will be present to receive friends at the church on Thursday from 12:00 p.m. until the start of the service at 1:00 p.m. COVID-19 protocols must be followed and everyone is required to wear a face mask.
