Remembering Grace Beall

Grace Beall and Sarah Frances Anders

Grace Beall pictured at left with Dr. Sarah Frances Anders at  the 2007 Stagg-Tolbert Forum, died November 12.  A  founding member of CBF-LA along with her husband Vernon, Grace was for
years our chief recruiter of leadership in her chairing of the nominating committee.

She had an energetic and cheerful disposition on which we could always depend. An educator
with a 44 year teaching career, she will be remembered for her many years of service at
Louisiana College where her innovation led to the development of a new business education
curriculum and where she also started the first computer lab.

She was a deacon at Emmanuel-Alexandria, where her funeral was conducted by her beloved pastors Chris Thacker and Lee Weems. A link to her obituary is here.
