Betty “Sue” Beckham Frentz, age 92, passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2021. She was born in Carthage, Mississippi, to Andrew “Bud” and Dollie Newsom.
Sue was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church of Gulfport, an active member of the Gulfport Yacht Club Ladies Auxiliary, and the Gulfport Mississippi Power Company Retirees for which she loved planning the annual Christmas Party. Ballroom dancing, playing bridge with friends, puzzles, arranging flowers, and spoiling her loved ones made her happy.
Sue was the beloved wife of Ladell Beckham (d. 1989) and Stuart Frentz (d. 2013). She was the devoted mother to Donna Salomon, Judy Cowart, and Joel Beckham and a loving grandmother to Courtney Cowart and Andrew Salomon. Sue is survived by her sisters, Mrs. Cassie Wilcher and Mrs. Virginia Harrell, both of Carthage. She is preceded in death by her parents; her husbands; and brothers, Victor, Henslin, Merritt, and Edwin.
Plans for interment are to be determined at a later date. Bradford-O’Keefe Funeral Home, 15th Street, Gulfport is honored to serve the Frentz family.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you spend quality time with your loved ones.
