Bea worked throughout her life, but her family was her focal point. She enjoyed family and friends, entertained easily, and made you always feel at home.

To my other mother,
I don't even know how to thank you for bringing me into the fold 50+ years ago. As an only child it was wonderful having 2 brothers and especially a sister! From the hundreds of days spent at your house, from swimming to coffee and wine hours our smiles, conversations and laughter will forever be remembered. Thank you for making me so welcomed into your family I will always feel honored to be Greek by association. thanks again for your love, attention and cooked oatmeal!

Love you,
Chris Fouser

Dear Aunt Bea...I can only hope you knew before you left us suddenly how much I loved you. How much I cherished my time with you. You taught me how to swim in your backyard pool during the absolute heyday of my childhood, just down the street, and my summers were magical. Your love was always present, your laughter was contagious, and you were the epitome of grace and honor to all whom you touched. I can't understand why God brought you home so suddenly, but your memory will linger on until it's time for me to go. I'll keep watch over your sister, my mom, and be there to help her deal with your loss as she will with me. Thank you for being my beautiful aunt. Thank you for being such a lovely person. You will be missed, but you will always be with me. I love you Aunt Bea, I always have. Until we meet again, rest easy.

Dear Cynthia,Andy&George-
Your Mom - my BEAUTIFUL Godmother- was the epitome of the word Lady. I never remember her without a smile that warmed you or an unkind word about anyone. We didn’t see each other often - but she always remembered my birthday with a beautiful card and follow up phone call to stay in touch. She was a gracious hostess, wonderful cook and always made you feel at ease in her presence. I’m so blessed to have spent a good hour talking with her just a month ago - my heart is so heavy with sadness - but I will always cherish her kindness and love.
May her memory be forever eternal
Thank you Nouna - for all that you were to me - I love you &will miss you terribly
