marker ceremony
Beal Family members, the Goose Creek Chapter, Daughter of the American Revolution, and friends gathered to place a DAR insignia marker on the headstone of Reba Templeton Beal. Her daughter, Kathy Freeman, organized the event to honor her mother, who had dearly loved her living family as well as those who had gone in generations before, such as her Revolutionary War ancestor, David Templeton. Mrs. Beal emulated Templeton's service to his country with her lifetime of service to others. Chapter Regent Elizabeth Gill presided over the meeting, while hapter Chaplain Laura Fae Templin conducted the memorial service. Reba's niece, Gladys, spoke of Reba's accomplishments and love for people. Also in attendance was Berta Mask, representing the Baytown Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, to which Beal belonged; Don Beal, Reba's husband; Donna Cary, Reba's daughter; Pauline Fagala, Reba's sister; and Life Robinson, Reba's grandson.
