Those who were close to Beatrice, knew that she preferred to go by Bea. Bea’s life revolved around her family, but not just her immediate family. She loved all of her family, from her babies to her extended family. She always had such a strong sense of love and commitment to her family that if she felt that she was needed by a family member, she would move to whichever state they were in to be there for them. When Bea lived in New Mexico, she found that she especially loved it there because she always felt at home.
Bea always enjoyed a long drive that allowed her to enjoy the sights that the surrounding landscape had to offer. She especially loved to see the country scenery.
Bea loved music and would enjoy listening to songs from some of her favorite musicians like Eydie Gorme and Los Panchos, Lucho Gatica and Los Tres Ases. In her free time, she enjoyed reading a book or solving a Sudoku puzzle. One of her favorite quotes was, “if only love were love.”
Bea was a beautiful soul, with determination, who was very giving and was never selfish with her love. She would always proudly say, “I did it my way,” when talking of the accomplishments and successes in her life.
