In her earlier years, Beatrice served as a primary teacher in the LDS church, pulling her kids in a wagon to class. She was also in the Young Women's program and enjoyed being a visiting teacher. For a number of years she actively served in the Centerville Jaycee's with her husband. As an employee of the telephone company in Bountiful, she would spend time answering and transferring calls. Later on she worked in the school lunch program. She loved to bowl and was on a bowling league. Quilting was another love of hers, and being a perfectionist, each quilt had to be just right. Buttons is her favorite cat and rules the house. We always remember the smile on her face as family arrived. We love you Mom! A special thank you for those caring people who watched over our Mom the last few months. South Davis Hospice, Home Teachers, Visiting Teachers, Ward members, neighbors and friends.
