Beulah Mae Lasater

At the age of 97, mom passed away in her sleep in Kennewick, WA on October 2, 2022.  She is rejoicing in heaven with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and her family and friends who passed before her.

Mom was born in Clinton, Arkansas to Lester and Martha Nixon.  She was the third of nine kids.  She married her husband, Herbert Lasater, at the age of 17 on August 17, 1942 in Elba, Arkansas.  Dad and Mom had six children, 14 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren.

Dad and Mom spent several summers driving from Arkansas to Walla Walla to work in the strawberry fields at Klickers.  They finally decided to move to Walla Walla in 1947.  In 1962, they moved their family to Richland, WA and operated Pringles Power Vac in the Tri-Cities.  They eventually purchased the franchise in the Tri-Cities and worked hard together to grow and expand the business, which is now owned and operated by their son David.

Mom was a homemaker when not helping with the business.  She was a wonderful southern cook.  Family and friends would stop by her house whenever possible to get a tasty meal which she took great delight in preparing.  She enjoyed making clothes for her children and crocheted many booties for her grandchildren.  The family game was Dominoes and “Shoot the Moon” was the game of choice.  Mom was a gardener, growing much of the food she canned.  As a true “Nixon” Mom loved fishing.

Mom instilled in her children a love for the Lord.  She was a faithful member of Richland Baptist Church and enjoyed the precious fellowship.

Mom was preceded in death by her husband, Herbert, parents, children Linda June Lasater, Garland Lasater, Sandi Sleater and her son-in-law Randy Snow, her brothers Lester Nixon, Gary Nixon, Paul Nixon and sisters Imogene Lasater, Donna Sterling, Geneva Biagi and Mary Featherston.

Mom is survived by daughters, Darlene Snow, Mary Lettau (Ralph), son David Lasater and brother Ray Nixon (Barbara).

The family would like to thank the care givers at Legacy House for taking such good care of Mom.   Also, a big thank you to the folks at Yokes West Richland Pharmacy.

Viewing will take place at Einans on Saturday, October 15th at 9am with a Graveside service to follow at 10 am.  A Celebration of life will be held at Richland Baptist Church on Saturday, October 15th at 12 noon.

  • Aunt Buelah Mae, you were such a delight. We always looked forward to your phone calls. We could count on you to remember our birthday. I will continue to put flowers on Linda June’s grave for you at decoration. I loved hearing my aunts laugh. Each one of you had a distinct sound to your belly laugh that blessed those around you. I know you are enjoying those sisters now. Rest in the arms of Jesus! Your family can take comfort in knowing how welcomed to heaven you were, by all the loved ones you have waiting on you.
