She married the love of her life Leo, in 1958 and settled in South Windsor where they raised their children. Bea was an active member of Christ the King Church and her faith was a very important part of her life. She was a hairdresser, an exceptional cook and a seamstress. She loved watching hockey and baseball cheering on the teams with Leo. She was the best Wife, Partner, Mother and Nonna! In the last few years, she fought with courage and dignity, and always had her loving Leo by her side. A special to thanks to all of the doctors, nurses and caregivers who cared for Bea at the Villages of St Clair. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Parkinson Society of Southwestern Ontario, Diabetes Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
