Find A Grave Memorial# 127454217

We have the same memorial on Sonia. Look at my Memorial #127454217. If you continue to maintain would you please add to the Obituary. She was a close and dear friend. We went to school together.
Obituary for Vescovi-Bartholomew
Published in the Albuquerque Journal on Sunday November 03, 2002

Vescovi- Sonia"Beula" Vescovi-Bartholomew, 56, of Laguna Hills, CA formerly of Albuquerque died October 7, 2002. Services have been held. She is survived by sons, Julio, Franco, Carlo; daughters, Gina, and Sara; brother, Ernie Rael; and one grandchild. Arrangements by Family Mortuary, Santa Ana, CA. She graduated from Pius X Highschool, Albuquerque, NM.

The words below are taken from her Memory Pamphlet written by her children:
"The word "mother" would not even begin to describe who our mom was to us. She was SO much more than just a mother. She was our best friend who would always put her needs last just to be there for us in any time of need. Her comforting words would always bring us peace when we needed it the most. She instilled in us at an early age the importance of knowing Jesus, and taught us what the word "love" really means.

We grew up not having much money, but mom always gave us an abundance of love. She would always find the free events in town, take us to all the parks and church functions she could find. She would always tell us that material things are not what make people happy, instead it was loving each other and being together.

She will be missed in a way that words cannot describe. Our lives and the lives of those she touched will never be the same without her. But the many wonderful memories we have of her will last a lifetime.

"Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked."
--II Corinthians 5:1-3.

She hated the name Beulah, but she was named by some nuns so her mother kept the name. Her middle name was Sonja, so she used it. She used her nickname "Boo" in college. The Bartholomew family adopted her when she was in her "40's. She was very close to Miss California (Summer Bartholomew). They were like sisters. Summer's family loved "Boo" very much and wanted to adopt her legally, and they did. By that time, "Boo's" mother and father had died so she agreed. She married Fred Vescovi back in the late 1960's, had 5 children (3 boys and twin girls). They were divorced when the girls were about 7 or 8 yrs. old. She was so intelligent. She was just shy of getting her Doctorate degree. She devoted her final years to God's work. She worked for Christian radio and TV in Oklahoma.

RE: Florence Quackenbush
I've transferred the Sheas to you. Thanks for the interesting info. Let me know if I have other family members and I will transfer. I am entering cemetery records and would rather family members manage the memorials.

Just sent you a SAC but now I wonder if Florence Shea Hale is a different person. She is in space 3 and Florence Quackenbush Shea is in space 4. Do you have any information about her / them? Thanks Judi

RE: William Wallace Lewis and Abigail
Did you ever get the full package of Luther Delos Follett's Civil War Pension papers where it might say from what disease?

RE: William Wallace Lewis and Abigail
Thank you so much for the first marriage record.
I think Luther D. Follett probably died from Measles since that disease killed more soldiers than bullets or tuberculosis. I have had so many
of my Michigan people die from TB.

Have you ever found divorce petition in Kalamazoo or Wayne Co., MI. for W.W. Lewis vs. Abby Lewis prior to 1858?

RE: William Wallace Lewis and Abigail
I never asked you what is your line of descent
from William Wallace and Abbie Alford Wallace.
Am I correct in thinking they married around 1851 divorce/separated and she married L. Follett and had two sons by him. He dies in 1862 and she remarries 1/h William Wallace Lewis?
