Oh, Ma! You are missed dearly! Our hearts break, but we know you are no longer in pain! We are confident that you are with the love of your life, our Father. Along with your parents and siblings.
You were a friend to many! The best mother you could be to the 5 of us kids. I know times have not always been easy through the years! Please, know that you were and are still loved so very much! Your 10 grandkids are such good kids! We know you were proud of them, I have no doubt they will continue to make you and us all proud as well! We strive daily to find our way without you, but we will find our way, one way or another. You always taught us to be strong! Strong is all I know! I have so much more I could say. But mostly, I just want to say how much I love you, miss you and may you rest in peace with Dad! Forever our Angel!

We met in Kearny. Hung out on Johnson Ave (Ann Marie’s house) and the Ave (west Hudson park). I was there for you at your dads funeral. Rode the Ave with Rebel and he told the best ghost stories. The ghost of the bride in Branch Brook park and some real good times cruising all the way to Rutherford. Bea you loved him and your kids/grandkids with all your heart. We kept in touch over the years even though I lived in Texas and you in Florida. BFF’s forever! Now you are with the love of your life (Rebel )! Rest In Peace my friend! I know you got your wings! Will see you when we meet again!

Bea R.I.P. we were friends for many years in Kearny, NJ. We all hung out on Johnson Ave in Kearny, NJ. There was a group of us 13 and 14 year old girls. I know her before she married Rev and we all stayed friends for years to come. Then she moved to Florida and we all stayed in touch on Facebook. I will miss you my life long friend. Love you Bea ❤️❤️❤️

I will always remember Bea for her loving heart, her infectious laugh and the sparkle in her eyes. I spent a lot of time working with her from my early early teens till my early twenties. I have a lot of fond memories of her. Whenever my mom was getting on to me at work for being a typical sassy teenager and being a lil too rough on me, Bea would always have my back and say " Cris " ( my mom ) calm down. I loved that about her. It happened quite a lot too 😂. The entire Brown family I have known since I was a little girl and the one thing I remember most is how much fun they are and always full of laughs. I'll always cherish those memories. My heart aches for all you loved ones. Rest in peace Bea, gone but never forgotten. ❤

Beatrice was a beautiful person, she was there in my childhood, and part of my adult life, I loved her very much❣️
She helped my mother through some difficult times in her life, and that meant the world to me,. And she has been there when I needed to talk about my mother's passing! She always knew how to bring me back out of the grief, for that I can say she is an angel! A very wise, intelligent, and loving and caring person. Until we meet again Beatrice, I love you❣️

Bea and I met over 30 years ago when her husband, Roger asked me to give her work. We hit it off right away. That first day at work we had a very dirty clean out to do. She jumped in and cleaned a very dirty oven and didn't complained. I relieved her so she could take a cigarette break. On the way home she told me she didn't know if she was wanting to do that kind of work. She however did, and worked off and on mainly on for many years. All of us girls got along well and had so many laughs. It was wonderful having her around us . We all got along fine. She gave wonderful advice and we all loved and respected her . She was a true friend and a hard worker. All of my children, granddaughter Sydney and some of my siblings,along with my husband knew her. My children loved her and I loved her. I will miss her beautiful smile and how she would always tell you the truth, even if you didn't want to hear it. She wasn't afraid to call you out on anything. This was one of the things I loved about her, she could see what you didn't. I will always remember and cherish you my friend and I will miss you and all of our talks. May you find comfort in the arms of the Angels ,Our Father welcomed home one more of his beloved daughters. Rest easy and in peace. Your work here is done . Till we are reunited again I will remember you.
