“Her battle with cancer is now over, no more tears flowing down her cheek, no more pain, no more suffering, she is no longer weak.”
Bea was described by her family as witty, fun loving, hilarious, young at heart, caring, spunky, and loving. Bea went home to be with the Lord in the early morning hours. “Gunny” as known by some of her grandchildren was an amazing person; blunt, and opinionated.…. But she always loved unconditionally, without judgement, always meant well, gave tough love, and worked hard as a fulltime housewife, loved all her grandkids and great-grandkids with all she had!
She will be deeply missed by her daughters Tina (Glen) Hobbs of Shelbyville, Bonnie (John) Earle of Virginia, and Becky (Jeff) Eaton of Napoleon, along with several grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Harold, and daughter Denise.
