Today we celebrate the life of Ms. Helen Elizabeth Walton who was affectionately known as "Aunt Beth." Aunt Beth was called home to be with our Heavenly Father on August 30, 2015 at the blessed age of 97.

She was born Helen Elizabeth Goode on October 31, 1917 to the late Reverend John Wesley Goode and Mrs. Hattie Jane Bailey Goode. She was the second child of four siblings.

She graduated from Prairie View A&M University in Prairie View, Texas with a degree in Cosmetology. Aunt Beth later received her certificate as a Cosmetology Instructor from Johnson & Randolph Beauty School. She later opened the Walton Beauty Salon, which she owned and operated for over fifty years. Additionally, Aunt Beth won many hair styling competitions during her career as a cosmetologist.

She was married to Willie (Boots) Walton, and although she did not bare any biological children, she was a Mother to many.

Aunt Beth was a Christian and a member of Davis Chapel Missionary Baptist Church for more than 64 years. Her involvement in church ministries included playing the piano, teaching Sunday school, and serving as a Circle President in Mission 1. She also sang in the Senior Choir and was Elected Woman of the Year in 1993, the first to receive this honor under Pastor Parker.

As the Matriarch of our family, Aunt Beth led by example. She encouraged us all to be the very best that we could be. We are truly blessed to have had such a loving example of strength, courage, and perseverance in our lives.

She leaves to cherish her memories Jimmy L. Ware, Sr. (nephew) of East Palo Alto, CA. and Pastor Carl L. Ware, Sr. (nephew) and wife Shirley of North Las Vegas, NV.

Aunt Beth also leaves three generations of nieces and nephews to carry on her legacy.

Helen Elizabeth Walton will live forever in our hearts. A job well done, Aunt Beth. Rest in Peace.
