Beatrice and I worked together at FedEx. She always had a smile on her face, and she always entertained and matched my silliness while we worked through issues at work. Her laughter was infectious, and she was always just so kind. Our hearts are broken at the passing of Beatrice. She will be greatly missed by her FedEx Family. I'll always remember her for her gentle heart, kind soul, infectious smile and laughter and love for her Friends, Family, and Life. My deepest condolences go out to her family as they navigate through this difficult time. <3

I worked with Beatrice at FedEx she was always smiling and willing to help me with any issues I had. We would email back and forth she always would tell me, " you are always so helpful" and in my mind I would say, " ME? you are always helping me". My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family during this very difficult time. Rest in heavenly peace dear friend you will be sadly missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with each of you who loved and cared for Beatrice. It is always hard to say our last earthly "good-byes" to those we love and hold dear to our hearts. But we know that for those who love the Lord and pass are now in the presence of our Heavenly Father and are worshiping at the feet of Jesus. Oh what joy must fill the hearts of those gone before. Home at last. May our heavenly Father give you strength for each new day until the sad clouds of grief roll away. In Jesus Love,

I worked with Bea at FedEx and whenever I had an exasperating day I could always call her and she would have something funny to say and she would make my day. Even after I retired we stay connected through social media. I think we are all better for have known her. Rest in Peace my friend...

Wow, where do you start with such a dynamic person and a soul taken way to soon. Beatrice and I worked together at Fedex. That was how we met but our relationship and friendship went way so much deeper than that. She was my crafting buddy and deal shopper. I knew I could always call her and ask her what she thought and she would tell me. She would also tell me, DAWN do you know what you are taking on....LOL God knew I needed a true, light hearted, sweet to the core person in my life. It still seems like we are in the twilight zone and she is going to pop on and say fooled you all and laugh her sweet giggle. I remember sending emails that were funny at times, waiting for her giggle. Beatrice loved her family and that wasn't just her blood family. If you were a friend to her, you were family. Beatrice lived a testimony true to her beliefs and I have always looked up to her for that and respected her for those beliefs. God bless you Beatrice. You are now living what you always had faith in and we are left to miss you until we see each other again. Many people ask what impact can you leave on the world. Beatrice truly left a mark on this world and a small light is out in my heart.

I was shocked and saddened to hear about Beatrice. I never met her in person, but she and I would discuss work over instant messenger. She was so fun to talk to and joke with, and could make a bad day bright. I hope that her family can find peace and healing in this difficult time.
