Bea was a kind and gentle spirit. We had the pleasure of her company and being with her on our many visits to Ken and Lisa's home. We certainly enjoyed our interesting conversations with Bea and found her well informed on many topics.
Our hearts and prayers are with her, her loyal brother Ken, his wife Lisa, Kenny and his family, as well as Bea's children and grandchildren. With eternal love from the Lippincotts - Carolyn, Dick, Rick, Salve, and Sean.

Ken, My thoughts and prayers are with you, our son, Kenny, Bea's nephew, Bea's children and your families at this difficult time. I'm remembering our big wedding August 1967, and Bea was one of my bridesmaids. It was a beautiful wedding; Kenny has the photo album now for all posterity. At the time, Bea had 3 beautiful, young children and I wanted what she had. I saw Bea last just before Keely was born. She looked the same; we sat together and caught up on all the years. I'm glad we had the opportunity to have that special time. I'm sad for the family and happy that Bea is HOME!
