Beulah Marty Logan,
Violinist Beulah Marty Logan died at her home in Inverness on February 12, 2002 at the age of 101. She was born in rural Kansas to second generation Americans, who owned and operated a restaurant in Courtland. Beulah showed an early interest in music and studied violin in Kansas City, Chicago, and New York. She joined the Chautauqua Circuit in the 1920's with her sister and traveled through the mid west providing community concerts in rural areas.
In 1924 Beulah met pianist Harald Logan, in Kansas City where they performed in concerts. They were married in 1926 and moved to Pullman Washington in 1927 where Harald taught piano at Washington State College for ten years. Together they raised two children, Bradley and Thelma.
The Logan family moved to Berkeley in 1937 and opened a music studio. As well as teaching violin, Beulah was active in the Berkeley Piano Club and Mu Phi Epsilon Sorority remaining a lifetime member of both organizations. After teaching for fifty years in Berkeley, they retired to Inverness in 1987 to be near their daughter Thelma. Beulah and Harald were active members in the Presbyterian Church of Point Reyes. Beulah's husband Harald died in 1993. She remained in her home and active in the community until her death. She is survived by her son Bradley Logan of Colorado Springs, Thelma Taron of Inverness, their spouses, five grandchildren, and eighteen great grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Point Reyes Presbyterian Church, Saturday, February 23, 2002 at 1pm. The family prefers memorial contributions in her memory be made to Point Reyes Presbyterian Church or the Inverness Garden Club Scholarship Fund.
