Letha Opal Beach

Posted: Wednesday, December 03, 2008

Soldotna resident Letha Opal Beach died Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2008, at her home surrounded by her family. She was 90.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 8, at Calvary Baptist Church in Kenai. Pastor Phil Reemstma will officiate.

Mrs. Beach was born Aug. 18, 1918, in Oklahoma. She spent most of her adult life living in Oregon and Idaho.

"She accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior in 1999," her family said.

She was married to John Caligan and later to Floyd Beach. She enjoyed working in her garden, reading, watching football and crocheting.

"We release our beloved mother and grandmother to her eternal home in Heaven. Letha provided her family with a sharp contrast of today's life and her experience living through the Great Depression. She reminds us that resilience is acquired by remaining faithful to your goal," her family said.

"Letha will be remembered for her well-timed humor and genuine love of her family. Her patience is some even the angels envy."

Mrs. Beach was preceded in death by her first husband, John Caligan and second husband, Floyd Beach.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Harold and Sharon Caligan; grandsons, John Caligan and his wife, Jane, Loren Caligan and his wife, Jubilee; granddaughters, Tracey Bunts and her husband, David, and Connie Taplin and her husband, Shawn; and great-grandchildren, Tyler, Blake, Zachary, Kendall, Derrick, Darlene, Desiree, Janessa, Jacob, Jillissa, Kyle and Tyson.

The family requests no flowers.

Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
