Beatrice was born on October 5th, 1924 in Harrisburg, PA and spent quite a few years in New York City where she raised her family. “Aunt B” as she was affectionately known, was a homemaker and attended various churches. She enjoyed reading the Bible, cleaning and walking. She also loved gospel music, milkshakes, chicken and enjoyed spending time with De’zire and Desuan.  Beatrice was very soft spoken; she had a very humble spirit and would help anyone she could.

Beatrice is survived by her sister-in-law Norma Martinez of Harrisburg, a niece who she helped raise, Sierra I. Martinez Courtney, a host of grandchildren, nieces and nephews that she loved and cherished dearly! Due to the covid 19 there will be a private viewing, followed by burial at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 1 p.m. Hooper Memorial Home, Inc. is handling services.


God Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be

So he put his arms around you

And whispered,

“Come to Me”


With tearful eyes we watched you

And saw you pass away

And although we love you dearly

We could not make you stay.


A Golden heart stopped beating

Hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
