Beatrice was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Lunenburg, where she was a member of the choir for many years. She was also a member of the “Singing Sisters” in years past. In her younger years she worked as a hairdresser, however her time was spent as a homemaker looking after her family. Beatrice enjoyed travelling the province with her husband Bob, in their camper, where they attended as many Exhibitions as possible. She was a quiet, kind and loving woman who had a tender spot for animals, particularly little dog “Buffy”.

Beatrice is survived by her sister, Barbara (William) Risser, Lunenburg, as well as several nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. She will also be missed by very close friend Mary Lou Croft of Blockhouse.
