Beatrice was a loving mother and caring grandmother who loved her family with all her heart.  She was a 'lady' in every sense of the word.  Being a people’s person, Beatrice never met a stranger.

During these years she developed many friendships that lasted a lifetime.  Beatrice loved her Lord and her church.
