Carolyn Beam Obituary

Carolyn Rae Nausner Beam, 74, daughter of the late Raymond and Bernice Finch Nausner, died Thursday, November 9, 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio after a long illness. She is survived by her beloved husband of 44 years, Donald Beam, her sisters, Janice Lemmerman (John) and Barbara Tedder (Quentin), her sister-and brother-in-law, Linda and Tom Hulbert, her nieces, Emily Lemmerman, Johanna Lemmerman, Shannon Brown and her nephew Scott Hulbert. She was a very Great Aunt to Brittney, Bryce and Braydon Brown and Eliza and Jack Lemmerman. Born on January 27, 1943, Carolyn spent her formative years in East Cleveland, Ohio, attended Shaw High and then finished high school at Eastlake North High. She graduated from Bowling Green State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education Degree and taught English in Findlay, Ohio and later taught Business Communications at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio. Carolyn met her husband, Don, at a teacher conference and after they married, they settled in Loveland, Ohio. Valentine's Day became her favorite holiday. At the time of her death, the Beams lived in Maple Knoll Village. Carolyn volunteered for many community events such as CET/PBS Annual Action Auction, all six of the Tall Stacks Extravaganzas, the Disabled American Veteran's Auxiliary, and the Southern Gateway Gals. Carolyn was an avid reader, a great pinochle player and a championship zell ball and ping pong player. She played trombone in the Bowling Green State University Marching Band and with the Nausner quartet. She was a member and greeter at the Sycamore Presbyterian Church. Carolyn loved to travel with her husband, Don, and was the navigator, although she had a limited innate sense of direction. The Beams made a good team and always found their way "down the road" as she loved to say. Carolyn enjoyed travelling on the Delta Queen and the American Queen Steamboats. Thank you to the many doctors, nurses, therapists and assistants who helped and cared for her in the hospitals and rehabilitation centers in which she stayed for most of the last two years of her life. Many thanks to the friends and relatives that visited her during her illness. Carolyn was always loyal and attentive to her family members and friends and counted her blessings. Carolyn's mother, Bernice, referred to a funeral service as a graduation. Carolyn would like for us to think of her at this time as having just earned a higher degree. Visitation will be between 11 AM -12 PM followed by a memorial service on Saturday, February 10th at the Sycamore Presbyterian Church, 11800 Mason Road, Cincinnati, Ohio. 45249. Contributions in lieu of flowers may be made to the Southern Gateway Chorus Angel Fund, 646 E Epworth Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45232.
