Bea was a homemaker that loved her family. She was a jack-of-all-trades and valued spending time with her entire family. She liked to play games, both card games and board games. Bea appreciated bowling and bowled in a league for many years. While in the nursing home, she fell in love with bingo and visiting with her friends.
