Bea worked at the Shoe Factory, Fulton State Hospital and The Spot Café, which she and Wallace purchased and operated for 17 years. Bea enjoyed her flowers, fishing and traveling. She was adventurous and always ready to try new things such as parasailing with her grandkids at the age of 80 and riding in a hot air balloon. Active in the lives of her family, Bea enjoyed attending her children and grandchildren's sporting events, concerts, school events, and going on vacation with family.
