Mrs. Beulah B. Strange Maloy, age 89, of Newport, went to
be with the Lord Friday morning, November 23, 2012.
She was born and reared in Cocke County, the daughter of
the late Rome Ball and Oma Ball Hance.
Mrs. Maloy was known as a soft-spoken lady, who loved her
children dearly and taught them to be loving and caring to everyone they met.
She will be greatly missed by family and friends and especially her cherished
friend and hairdresser Pam Hannon.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by
her husband Voyle Maloy, former husband and the father of her children Ed
Strange, sisters Juanita Belle Hance and Eula Blanch Dugger, brothers Wayne and
Leon Hance, and great-granddaughter Amy Rebekka McMahan.
Mrs. Maloy was heartbroken when her grandson Chip McMahan
died unexpectedly at the V.A. (NHCU) at Mountain Home, Tennessee, where he had
resided for many years. Chip was the only grandchild who called her "Grandmother,"
and waited with anticipation for Grandmother to call him every Saturday at 4:00
She is survived by her daughter Sue (Gene) McMahan of
Johnson City; sons Dood (Brenda) Strange and Bryce (Sherry) Strange, all of
Newport; Everett "Sog" (Karen) Strange of Kingston; and Darryl
"Chuck" (Victoria) Strange of Pigeon Forge. Grandchildren Janet

Tim Strange, Jeff Strange, Mark Strange, Brian Strange, Jody Strange, Ryan
Strange, and Randy Ogle; sisters Shirley Allen, Imogene Taylor, and Trula
Gregg, and brother Johnny Hance.
Additional survivors include several great-grandchildren,
several nieces and nephews, and former daughter-in-law Linda Strange.

November 25, 2012, in Costner-Maloy Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Bill Murr
Entombment will be in the Resthaven Memorial Gardens
Mausoleum. Grandsons will serve as pallbearers.
