Aunt Bea you will be missed by the whole clan in Galeton. I have so many memories from when I was little and I got to walk down to Clinton Street to see you, uncle Bill, Geno & Jeff. And then all the good time we all had when you came back for a visit remember sitting on the front porch chatting with mom & you. Please give Uncle Bill, Geno, Joyce, Willie a BIG HUG from all of us. Love & Miss you Aunt Bea.

Aunt Bea, When I say her name memories of years ago fill my heart with joy. One special one was the first time she made my brother, George and I "Snow Ice Cream with Maple syrup." Loved the stories about her youth here in Galeton, Pennsylvania. With all the memories she will always be in my Heart. Love you Aunt Bea. Rest in peace. P.S. Hug Uncle Bill for me.

Beatrice "Aunt Bea" as I called her was a great lady. My sibling and I visited her and my uncle Bill many times. For a petite lady she was robust in all she did, touring us around Abilene, walks around the town, and of course the candy factory! We loved her very much and while my heart is breaking I know that she is with her Lord and held in high honors for her deep faith and service to Him.
Rest in Peace Aunt Bea. Love You Phil and Coleen Osgood, Galeton PA.
