Beatrice's Eulogy


Today we are here to say good bye and celebrate the life of Beatrice. When Frank asked me to talk today the first thing that came to mind is what can I say about her that everyone didn't already know. Most people including myself have friends and acquaintances. You know those people you say hi to but don't really know. Beatrice didn't have any of those. If you were blessed enough to know her you KNEW her. She was an open book to others and remembered everything about her friends.

She was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and grandmother. A very proud grandmother. She has 7 grandchildren and was at the birth of every one of them. I'm sure everyone of her friends her today probably know all about them. Since she loved to brag about them.

Another point I was asked to include today was how tough a woman she was before her battle with polymycitis the last 11 years. Some people that didn't know her before the disease hit or were just too young may not know that she used to be such a workhorse. At IBP in Kansas I was told she used to trim meat so fast that the packers couldn't keep up with her. She also used to cut the sides of beef at Kenosha Beef. She was the only woman on that line. She also put long hours in at Acme Die Casting. The point again is how tough she was.

I think that toughness had to start from a young age. She had to grow up a lot faster than most. Many don't know that she had her first child Martha at the age of twelve. She had John when she was only 14 and sadly lost him when he was 14. Yet she always did what she could to care for them and everyone around her. She always pushed on and persevered.

I think I have stood her long enough talking BUT the family has always known me to be a music fact nut. I find it fitting that the number one song on the radio the week she passed on was a song titled WE FOUND LOVE. What could have been more fitting.

I will hold you in my heart all my life. Like I told you the last day I saw you, "This is not goodbye, this is a see you later." Love you. Today and everyday. My guardian angel.

Hey Ma,
Been a while again. Thought about you a lot last night. Your ring never leaves my finger. It's my good luck charm! So I was on leave recently. Wish i couldve seen you. Poncho put all those pictures up! The hallway looks really nice. You'd like it. Hopefully you look down on everyone and smile. We all miss you. Love, Heather
