Beatrice, was known as Mom, Grandma, GG mom and Tia Bea, by all those who knew her. She enjoyed going to family gatherings, reading the newspaper to keep up with the latest, watching her novellas, taking flowers to her loved one’s grave sites on special occasions, and doing whatever her grandchildren asked of her. On several occasions she would be seen taking Patron shots, taking funny pictures, playing loteria and any games that involved money, so she could take it from them.
She was the family historian, telling stories of her youth, her family, and the “good ole’ days” like she would say. She was a strong, wise, independent, loving, caring, but sometimes stubborn person. She was a survivor and gave unselfishly to all those she loved, especially her family, who she loved very much.
Mom, Grandma, GG mom, Tia Bea, will be greatly missed by all those who’s life she touched. She went to be with our heavenly Father, knowing that her family would be alright because she planted the same seed in all of those she loved, so that they could carry on without her.
