Ann Beal, 70, of Hillsborough, N.C.

HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Ann Beal, 70, mother, grandmother, sister, scholar, teacher, and friend, of Hillsborough, North Carolina, passed away at home on May 29 of multiple myeloma.

She loved and studied the wildness of nature, the rhythm of poetry, and the complexities of the human mind. She was a scholar of William Blake, Elizabeth Sewell, and John Rogers and the Tyndale Bible.

She grew up in Glasgow where she enjoyed a tight-knit community and large family including 32 first-cousins. She graduated from Glasgow High School in 1961 and then attended Newcomb College of Tulane University in New Orleans. All her life she held to fond memories of New Orleans food and night-life especially French onion soup. She received her BA degree from the University of Kentucky, her Masters from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and her PhD from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

She taught English and writing at Eastern Kentucky University, the University of Wisconsin at Platteville, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and Guilford College before moving to Chatham, Virginia in 1982. There she taught English, film, journalism, and poetry at Chatham Hall for 29 years. As a teacher she is remembered for her understanding and compassion. She taught hundreds young women open-mindedness and self-awareness which are the roots of kindness and creativity. Summers were spent swimming in Whitehead Pond, gazing at the ever changing ocean waters at Holden Beach, and watching the stars at night.

In her retirement, she enjoyed the cultural activities in the Raleigh Durham area and loved the culinary options on Churton Street and attending the Farmers’ Market.

She is survived by her daughter, Madeline Beal, of Laurel, Maryland; her sisters, Martha Dickinson, of Ellsworth, Maine and Joan Walker of Durham, North Carolina; her brother-in-law, Henry Walker, of Durham, North Carolina; her daughter-in-law, Carol Anthony-Beal, of Madison, Wisconsin; her son-in-law, Jacob Corbin and her grand-children, Walter and Mildred Corbin-Beal, of Laurel, Maryland. She is preceded in death by her parents Dr. John and Mildred Dickinson, of Glasgow, Kentucky and her son, Jonathan Beal.
