WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Beulah (Fox) Warriner, 89, a longtime resident, passed peacefully on Jan. 6, 2005, in Williamstown. She was the wife of the late Robert Warriner, who had retired from Sprague Electric Company of North Adams. They had resided in Williamstown since 1959.

She was born on Oct. 1, 1915, in Dayton, Ohio, daughter of Harry F. and Florence (Trentman) Fox. Beulah graduated from Kiser High School, and attended the Proctor School of music. This began her lifelong love of music. She taught piano in Dayton and married Robert in 1944 before moving to Massachusetts. They lived in Marion for 10 years. While there, she was involved in the First Congregational Church and its choir.

They moved to Williamstown in 1959 and she again became active in the First Congregational Church. She taught the youth choirs and sang in the senior choir for more than 40 years. After retiring to Sweetwood, she continued to enjoy playing the piano for the resident’s entertainment and for special occasions.

She accompanied the Williams Glee Club on piano and toured with them in the early 1960s. She also donated a large amount of time to assist the Women’s Exchange of Williamstown, which is a charitable organization supporting the Visiting Nurses Association.

She leaves behind a sister, Audrey Martin of North Carolina; a son, Richard Warriner of California; a daughter, Ellen R. Warriner of Westfield; and three nephews, Steven Martin of Illinois, David Martin of California and Kal Simons of South Dakota.

Funeral services will be from the First Congregational Church, 906 Main St. in Williamstown at 2 p.m. on Monday, January 10, 2005. Burial will follow the service at Eastlawn Cemetery in Williamstown. A reception will follow the service at the church.

Memorial contributions may be made to the First Congregational Church, 906 Main St., Williamstown, MA 01267. Please mark them as a contribution for Beulah’s Piano Fund. The fund will be used to purchase for the church the previously owned Steinway which has been recently located. The church project to purchase this piano is currently at half its goal.

Arrangements are under the direction of the George M. Hopkins Funeral Home 61-67 Spring St. in Williamstown.
