Beulah Mae (McDaniel) Wilson

Beulah Mae “Boots” Wilson, age 79, a resident of Belen, passed away on Nov. 4, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.  

She was a member of the Belen Coffee Club, and enjoyed reading, puzzles, crafting and playing card games and dominoes.  

Beulah liked outbidding her husband when they played “moon” together. She liked snakes and spiders, much to the dismay of her family. She enjoyed country music and loved to watch western movies and shows.  

She was a Christian woman, who cherished and adored her family. She was an amazing grandmother and great-grandmother, who loved all of her grandchildren to bits.  

Boots is preceded in death by her parents, Clyde and Rubye McDaniel; brother, James Earl McDaniel; granddaughter, Alexandria Kimball; parents-in-law, Art and Nellie Wilson; brother, Lester McDaniel; and sister-in-law, Lanelda McDaniel.  

She is survived by her loving husband, Joe Wilson, of Belen; daughters, Cathy Wilson (Shawn Ortega), of Laguna, N.M., and Terri Kimball, of Los Lunas; brother, Roy McDaniel, of Texico, N.M.; sisters, Mary Danforth (Gary), of Portales, N.M., and Hazel DeWittie (Noel), of Tacoma, Wash.; grandson, Howie Kimball, of Los Lunas; great-grandson, Kai Kimball, of Bosque Farms; and sister-in-law, Linda Moore, of Lancaster, Calif.
