Her great granddaughter Laina Weir lovingly called her Gramma Bea. She is also survived by her older sister Joan Tracy and her family.
Our Mom was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. She always took the time to show us love from daily phone calls, to birthday cards, carefully chosen on-point Christmas ornaments and Sunday dinners. She was an avid knitter and made the most beautiful sweaters, blankets, hats, scarves and Christmas stockings that will be treasured forever. She was a skilled piano player and some of our most cherished memories of times standing around the piano in the "Black Whale Inn" singing and dancing to her tunes.
The many dear friends and neighbors mom had made throughout her life were a blessing to her and to her family as well.
