Patricia S. Beall

February 28, 1942 — April 8, 2024

On the early morning of April 8, 2024, and after a brief illness, the Lord received Patricia Sharron Beall into the Kingdom with the words: “Well done, good and faithful servant.”  Pat’s life can truly be summed up with that one word: “servant.”  She lived to be faithful to her calling and our Savior Jesus Christ, and to serve her family, community, and church unceasingly. 

For years, Pat served the Harundale Little League by spending numerous hours yearly creating and typing a memorable yearbook, working the concession stand almost nightly, mending uniforms, making banners, and performing countless other tasks unnoticed by the many boys and girls who benefitted from her silent commitment. 

When called upon by the Community Gospel Church of Pasadena, Pat stepped up and taught all the women in the congregation to embroider so that a whole generation of young newlyweds each had a handmade embroidered wedding quilt.  Pat even drove to her grandparents’ home in Beckley, West Virginia, to retrieve dozens of her grandmother’s personally-made embroidering stencils to share with the church ladies.

For years, Pat managed and worked the flower stand located in the Harundale Mall parking lot for Harrington Farms.  She took immense pride in having the prettiest, cleanest outdoor flower shop in town.  Her first job, however, was right out of Glen Burnie High School as a secretary and office assistant at the Fort Meade Army base, where she met her future husband, M.Sgt. Earl Leroy Beall. 

The most obvious example of Pat’s unwavering service to others is the fact that her home in Glen Burnie was “the gathering place.”  Hardly a day went by without numerous neighborhood kids coming and going.  Pat opened her home to all.  She spent her days watching over them, cooking for them, cleaning up their mess left in the yard, and counseling many lost youngsters.  To this day, many former neighborhood kids have referred to Pat as their “second mother.”

As a toddler during World War II, Pat sat on the floor with her mother rolling gauze bandages for potentially wounded Allied soldiers.  During her middle years, she volunteered at Kimbrough Army Hospital for the Red Cross.  In her later years, she cared for her husband, Earl, daily as he was weakened then succumbed to various illnesses.  From beginning to end, Pat selflessly served those in her family and community.  One as a tireless, faithful, kind, gentle, and selfless servant is Pat Beall’s legacy. 

Pat is survived by her four children: Patti Trainor (Pat), Danny Beall, Mickey Beall (Angela), and Lori Donohue (Bob), nine grandchildren, and soon-to-be five great grandchildren.  She is also survived by her loving sisters: Betty Nelms and Cheri Whitman, and devoted brother Jimmy Lowe. 

Viewing services will be at Singleton Funeral & Cremation Services on Crain Highway on Wednesday April 17, from 6-8PM and Thursday April 18, from 2-4PM and 6-8PM.  The funeral service/procession will start on Friday April 19, at 10AM and proceed afterwards to the Maryland Veterans Cemetery - Crownsville, where she will be laid to rest with her husband, Earl.
