Her family and grandchildren were the center of her life. “Mimi,” as she was known by her grandchildren, was their greatest cheerleader.  She was a fun loving person and loved floating in the lake and the beach and her Tuesday Night Girl’s nights.  She was a kind person who would give her last dime to anyone in need.  She will be remembered most for her wonderful smile.

She is survived by her husband, Thomas Beasley of Eagle Lake; son, Jeremy Beasley (Christie) of Vicksburg; daughters, Haley Kirby (Cliff) of Eagle Lake and Carrie Meyer (Ryan) of Vicksburg; her father, Malcolm “Tiny” Antoine (Georgia) of Vicksburg; her mother, Helen Canizaro (Eddie) of Vicksburg; sisters, Jaa Allen (Dana) of Vicksburg, Sandy Whitaker (Doug) of Georgia and Brenda Price (Donnie) of Illinois; grandchildren, Logan Sanders, Brayden Truesdell, Layton Truesdell, Camden Meyer, Peyton Meyer, Elliott Beasley and Baby Boy Beasley who is on the way.
