Jennifer “Jenny” Beauman



Jennifer “Jenny” Beauman, 66, passed away Thursday, February 15, 2024. She was a lifelong resident of Burke County who dedicated over 35 years of her life to teaching in its community. She touched the hearts and minds of generations of students with her unwavering commitment and genuine care. She loved seeing, speaking, and laughing with all her students, past and present, and they loved her. She could recall all of them and the family members she taught. She had a loving and funny story about every one of them.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Fred Beauman Sr., and her parents, Lee Issac and Sadie Chance Perry, whom she loved and spoke of often. She is survived by her “daughter,” Beau Beauman, whom she tolerated only on her best days, and her favorite son, Channing Beauman. She also leaves behind a much-beloved daughter-in-law, Carson Beauman, and two “adopted” sons, Jake Allen and Todd Dickey, who, by most of her accounts, were actually her favorite sons, perhaps only surpassed by the occasional family pet.

All joking aside—which rarely occurred in her family—you could scour the earth and never find another soul as fairminded, gentle, caring, intelligent, and selfless. She was a once-in-a-lifetime human, and it makes you sad that she only had one life to give, as she would happily give many to help others. Her company and laughter will be missed dearly. Today is a little colder for her not being in it, but if you are going to cry, do so with laughter, as she did.

The family received friends from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday, February 19, at the funeral home. Funeral services were at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 20 in the DeLoach-McCarey-Prescott Funeral Home Chapel. Burial followed at Corinth Christian Church Cemetery.

Pallbearers were Josh Quick, Jackson Oliver, Rodney Belk, Adam King, Gage Belk, and Landon Sizemore.

Honorary pallbearers were former students of Faith Christian Academy.
