According to her obituary Bea worked in retail most of her life, to include Loblaws, Great American, Hewlett Jewelers, Jessie Anne Shop, and several years at Carbino’s Jewelers before retiring. She was a life member and active volunteer of the Hepburn Hospital Auxiliary and gift shop manager, a member of the Home and School Association, a Catholic Charity Volunteer, and member of the St. Mary’s Altar & Rosary Society.

She enjoyed singing & dancing, trips to Florida, reading, crossword puzzles and being around family. Bea was also a close friend to the Ogdensburg area clergy members and a devout NY Yankee fan. Her love for the Yankee was honored at the calling honors on Sunday where family members wore Yankee attire and asked those attending to do so. Their request was fulfilled by many who mourned her and celebrated her life of caring.
