Our beloved mother and grandmother, Wilma Mae Eagle, began her journey in grace on February 13, 2021. She was born at the Fort Hall Indian Agency Hospital on September 6, 1936, to Rosetta LaRose and Walter Allen Eagle.
As a beautiful young lady, Wilma married Noel John Beasley and to this union was born six children. After divorce and years had passed, mom married the love of her life, Robert “Red” Perry. Mom and Red later divorced, but their love was unbreakable and they remarried nearly 20 years later.
In her youth, Wilma worked various labor jobs and as a teacher’s aide. In the mid-90's she retired from Kraft Foods, with exceptional years of service. Mom had a special bond with each of her kids and grandchildren, enjoying visits and celebrations of their lives. With a gentle soul and a kind heart, grandma found good in everyone; the rock of our family, she believed in the potential of all. She enjoyed gardening, feeding her birds and squirls, and hitting the casino with Aunt Freda.
Wilma is survived by her children, William “Bill” Beasley (Aleena Hernandez), Luke Eagle, Buford Beasley, Debra Beasley, Rebecca Beasley (Raymond Diaz), and Brenda Ayllon, 28 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren and several great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister and lifelong best friend, Alfreda Dixey.
Upon completion of her journey, mom will be reunited with “Grandpa Red”; beloved grandchildren, Wilma Pacheco, Wyc Beasley, Lucas Beasley, Wylee Beasley, Raven Beasley, Echo Beasley and Thayne Beasley; her parents and siblings, Robert, Robertta and Harvey.
Mom will be brought home for final visitation on Wednesday, February 17 at 10:00 am – 6 Sheepskin Rd (corner of Eagle Rd), Fort Hall. Burial will be at the Cedars Cemetery on Thursday, February 18 at 2:00 pm.
Our Mother’s Presence
By Kelly Roper (modified)
Our mother’s presence always warmed our home,
With peace and security and love.
She was like a gentle breeze that wafted through,
Setting things right, creating a haven for all.
Whatever problems we had, Mom solved them.
Whatever triumphs we had, Mom celebrated them.
Whatever needs we had, Mom fulfilled them.
Surely such a mother could never drift far,
From those she loved with all her heart.
Though she has left her earthly body behind,
We feel her presence still.
Mom remains close to us, she knows our sorrow,
And she enfolds us in invisible arms, we can still feel,
And she comforts us.
