Not sure what to say?

Bea was a very special person. Always in a good mood. We had lots of laughs at the bank. My prayers are with the family

Casey, Chris and family, Sending prayers and support to each. Remember many gatherings with your folks and my folks. Such busy and great days for all. This is such a heartfelt loss for each of you. Hugs across the miles...

I am so lucky to have known and worked with one of the sweetest ladies ever. She had a smile for everyone and always made my day. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. RIP Bea!!

Casey, Chris, and Family...We are sorry to hear the news about your Mom. We send our sympathy to you and your whole family. I remember the wonderful time we had back in high school, and the way our parents helped organize the many Band activities.

Two of our children, Todd and Queenie, took piano lessons from Bea for a few years. Todd wasn;t thrilled with having to practice, but he really thought she was a nice teacher so he kept up with the lessons. Queenie went on a bit further with other instructors, but Bea was a favorite! She was a delightful lady and we know she will be missed.

Altho I have not seen Bea for Years and years I still have good memories of working with her for Opus Petri Sancti. She (or maybe it was Jack (!) ) liked to have parties and was so gracious about it. My deep sympathy is with you Chris and Kevin and all the family as I know you are missing her very much. Marcy Erickson

My condolences to Kevin and the rest of the family. She sounds like a great person.

Bea brightened my Mondays at Meals on Wheels. I always looked forward to her help and humor as she and Kathy got the meals ready. In addition, we often saw each other at St. Odilia bible study classes. She was a very sweet woman and will be missed. My sympathies to her loved ones.
