Sorry for your loss. Will always remember Bea with a smile, doing her gardening and listening to Cub games in the summer.

Sorry does not carry enough weight to express the sorrow at this time. Aunt Bea lived a full life. She is now at peace and reunited with Uncle Stan. Out prayers go out to them and to Bernie and Ron.

Mid 1960's (upper left) to Bea's 96th birthday
I have known Bea for over 50 years since we met at work at the CSC in the mid-60s.We discovered we both lived in Riverdale about a mile apart. My husband, Dave, came to admire Bea during our house visits and lunches together. Bea was a friend, confidant, and like family to me. Every year, we celebrated our birthdays together with our mutual friend, Natalia. If you are looking down now, Bea, know that I love and miss you--

Bea was a dear friend she was more like a sister to me. We worked together for over 21 years & shared many good times together I will miss our phone chats & reminising about our families & friends. We have stayed in touch all these years. My thoughts & prayers are with you all. She was a great lady & will be deeply missed.

Rest in Peace Bea, we have countless wonderful memories of special times. You were my grownup "sister" and I will treasure those days when we had time together. Our family gatherings at your home were such happy occasions, expanding the table longer and longer as the family grew. We will miss you!
