Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Beatrice by adding your memories and photos.


I loved Bea the second I met her. She was hilarious and always able to put a smile on anyone's face. You knew how much she loved her kids and grandkids; her face would light up when she'd talk about them- even if she was teasing them! I will always remember her, Judy, Lynn, and Georgia for being so amazing and such an incredible family.

I always remembered her coming into the store to get instant lottery tickets. Always smiling and full of p*ss and vinegar. She will be missed dearly. My thoughts are with the family...So sorry for your loss. She was truly an awesome lady.

So very many memories... Some of my favorites are picking strawberries and dipping them in powdered sugar,laying on a blanket under the apple tree, sharing pickles with my cousin, plucking chickens, exploring about the beautiful property, walking up the "huge" hill to the "Indian tree", lunch at Jody's, most of all the given knowledge and advice from the greatest grandmother a granddaughter could ever have!

I will always have the memories of drive in movies, Mcdonalds,camping, bird watching and dolphins in the ocean on our boat. I can always have those. I know you are with daddy and that you are happy now and not in pain. My love for you will always be and I know you will always be with me whenever I need you. You were a lady to the end Lady Jane I love you.

I knew Bea and her family from church many years ago when we were growing up. So sorry to hear about her passing.

Saw her in later years at the "Halfway" for supper with the girls.

My prayers are with your families.
