Beatrice M. (Tony TL1) Laughlin born in Skidmore, Texas in Bee County on August 4, 1928 passed away peacefully on March 28, 2013. In her 84 years on this earth she devoted 27 years of labor to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union #527 of Galveston, Texas, residing in Clear Lake, Texas for over 30 years. Some of her favorite past times included riding her bike through the park, playing dominos and spending quality time with her family and treasured friends. Going on trips throughout the United States and Europe with her traveling buddies, going on trips to Louisiana and Las Vegas to have some fun playing “Let it Ride” and the slots with her friends. Toni’s genuine smile, loving heart, kind and thoughtful words were a blessing to all that was graced by her presence.

Aunt Bea...I am so sorry I was unable to be with you again. You were "Sonny's" favorite for good reason. Time and travels spent with you were always wonderful fun and we both love you still. No doubt you and Sonny and Ethel are joyfully reminiscing about the RV trip out west and others. I don't know anyone more sincere in their goodness and joy or deserving of Heaven. I'm so grateful you were a part of my life.
Love, Becky O'Neal

Toni was one of my favorite clients for over fifty years; we shared many good experiences together. Daryl was always one of our conversations. She was such a delightful person, always willing to have a good laugh. I will miss styling her hair which was very easy to do. She made my work look good!
