Bea, what an angel you were. You were so loved by so many. Your marriage to Doc was a match made in heaven, for each of you needed one another at that time in your lives. Especially for Doc.  You inherited a large family and immediately accepted them all as your own. Janice and I are forever grateful for your love and support through the years, especially early years in our marriage.  You accepted our children as your own.  You were a loving and kind grandmother to each one of them. You were their Bea Bea.  You always had a smile and couldn't do enough for others. We so much enjoyed our visits to the lake. It didn't matter if it was one or all of us you were always happy to see us and couldn't wait to cook for us. Thank you for letting me be apart of your life. I am a better person because of it.  Love you Bea

Bea, you were truly a blessing to our family. You came along and into my daddy's life at a time when he needed you the most. My mother had just passed away and he was lost. You brought so much love and joy to him. You took the four of us kids under your wing and treated us as if we were your own. You became our mother, and grandmother to our children. I hope you know how much you meant to us. We love you, and miss you.

My name is Pam Woods Meyercord and my parents, Marilyn and Trent Woods were friends of Hank and Bea. My parents grew up with Hank in Shattuck, OK and later were at Oklahoma A &M together. My mother remembered Hank’s first wife who died when the violent tornado of 1948 hit their family farm.

Our family moved to Dallas in 1959 and Hank and Bea were some of the first people my parents called. I remember those long drives to Oak Cliff (before the freeways) to visit their home. Doug was very young then but he might have some memories of my brother, Bobby, who was closer to his age. I know that the two couples had a lot of fun together.

I’m so glad to read the long tribute here and to see all the photos. I remember Bea with her stylish, dark hair. So pretty.

My father died in 2018 and Mother passed away last year. She had dementia but remembered every detail of her youth and all their friends. They spent their final years back in Shattuck.

I know you will miss your mother. I am so thankful that you put her obituary in the Dallas paper. I hope you get some comfort from hearing from someone who knew your mother so long ago.

I was honored to have Bea as my mother-in-law. Bea brought joy and happiness to those lucky enough to interact with her. She lived life to the fullest, practically to her last breath. I miss her dearly, as I know so many others do as well.
