MARY THERESA (JERNIGAN) BEASLEY

Mrs. Beasley, a beloved wife of 19 years and mother of three beautiful children, was the root of her family tree. She had a unique and mutual connection with each sibling and was described by all who loved her as the most unselfish person.

She always gave very practical advice in a loving manner. She never showed favoritism, only love, compassion, and complete confidence; her humor was just dark enough to make it interesting. Mrs. Beasley was described as the most selfless person.

She was a devout Catholic. A human example of the biblical command to, “Love thy neighbor as thyself”. She not only portrayed this characteristic to her family and friends but also to strangers or anyone in need. She loved to cook and enjoyed outdoor barbeques. She was a talented dog handler and had worked several years with Andalusia (Tom Ryder’s) Physical Therapy.
