Bea was a special lady. She was one of the Good Old Soreheads. I enjoyed talking with her about her family and sports. I know she will be missed but she lived a long and full life. Our prayers are with all of the family.

Game nights at our reunions will never be the same without her! Every time I play chicken foot or any domino games, I laugh at all the fun we had. She was a very special lady and will be missed by so many. God bless and comfort each one of the family. I will be there in spirit as you remember her with a lot of love and memories.
Praying for you and your family during this time of loss.
