Obituary for Eleanor Beaumont

Eleanor Rita Beaumont was born on January 8, 1947 in Newark, New Jersey to parents Charles and
Mary Watkins. Eleanor was nothing short of a beautiful soul, she was an astonishing woman who
walked through life with grace and poise. She was true and she was loyal to a fault to her family and
to her many friends
Rita attended the Newark School System and like the star she was – she was always at the top of her
class. A vivacious and fun-loving child, she was a delight to her parents.
It was while Rita was employed at Kemper Insurance in Summit, New Jersey as a Senior Coder and
Assistant Supervisor when she met and fell in love with George Beaumont.
Rita became ill and her illness began to take a toll on her. But, undaunted by her illness, she pursued
life to the best of her ability, with every fiber of her being. With great resilience she threw herself into
causes that she believed whole heartedly - would not only help her but would help others too. She
became involved with several cancer support groups and as an avid and tireless Breast Cancer
activist, she was often chosen to speak at various functions.
Like the warrior she was, Rita also headlined other causes. She was the Vice President of the Sisters
Network, Newark Chapter, an African American Breast Cancer Survivorship Organization. She also
was an active and passionate volunteer for the American Cancer Society programs, where, unafraid,
she boldly championed other causes and participated in several clinical trials to further the research
for a cure for cancer.
Rita’s life was more than just her battle, it was a life filled with love and laughter, travels and
adventures. She enjoyed people and people truly enjoyed her in return.
Eleanor Rita Beaumont was called Home on September 5, 2019. Her last days were spent at home
surrounded by her family and love ones. Today we celebrate the life of this beautiful soul who so
blessed and touched each of our lives as she walked with us for so many years.
Eleanor Rita Beaumont is survived by her husband George, her mother Mary, her brother Charles,
daughter Tracey, grandchildren, Amori, Kai, Arturo and a host of beloved relatives and friends.
She was indeed the essence of a beautiful soul! She lived and loved without limitations, and the frailty
of the human body could never contain that radiant spirit or the soul of Eleanor Rita Beaumont. So, in
honor of HIS light, let’s celebrate her with loving memories of her smiles, her zest for life and her
boundless laughter.
As the heavens light your path home, we bid you God’s speed and rest well our beautiful, wonderful
and unforgettable Eleanor Rita Beaumont!
