Our beloved and very loving child of God, wife, sister and auntie died after a very short and sudden illness at Vanderbilt University Medical Center on May 9 with her husband at her side.
She was met by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, along with her mom, dad, brothers (Ben Edward and Liston) and great niece Hannah. She was the first member of our Rutledge clan to graduate from college (Trevecca Nazarene University). For that we will always be very proud.
Auntie will forever be remembered for the nicknames she had for each of us and her amazing macaroni and tomato entrée.
She is survived by her husband, Edwin Beadles of Charlotte, brother and sister-in-law, Preston and Lisa Rutledge, brother and sister-in-law, Bobby and Lola Rutledge; nephews and nieces, Kurt Edward (Shelia) Rutledge, Keith Allen Rutledge, Kenneth Wayne “Red” Rutledge, Robert Levator Rutledge, Scott Williams and Pamela Kay Rutledge (Harry) Felty; great-nephews and great nieces, Kyle Rutledge, Bryton Rutledge, Brandon Rutledge, Iasaih Williams, Israel Williams, Christian Williams, Omar Williams, Noah Williams, Justin Disbro, Jessica Rutledge (Daniel) McKinney, Morgan Rutledge, Kayla Rutledge, Tasha Williams, Angel Williams, Elizabeth Williams and Olivia Williams; great-great-niece, Kinslee Rutledge. All family listed above is of Rock Island. Father-in-law and mother-in-law, Harry and Irma Beadles of Fayetteville, Ark.; sister-in-law, Dacia (Robert) Williams of Walnut Ridge, Ark.
