    Dear Mary, Charmaine, Larry & Family, and Cheryl & Family,

    Beaty will be missed by all of us who knew her so well. I will always remember her as a lively little lady who loved bright colors and looked so attractive in them. Her step-great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren were a joy to her and she loved spending time with them. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you say your final goodbyes to that sweet little lady.
    Love, Marion & Ralph
