Beatrice eventually moved to Lynn, MA and then to Rowley, MA where she worked and raised her family for years.

She also dabbled in dancing, often with her children. Beatrice loved to watch wildlife documentaries and jot down recipes from cooking shows, and she loved listening to a
diverse array of music. Above all, she loved to spend time with her pets and be home with her family
