Beatrice was only 7 years old when her father died. She remembered always watching for her father to come home in his car. She would have a rock ready for him to put behind the tire. When her father died of typhoid fever, she and some of the other children came down with it. She almost died and had to stay for months in Erick with a lady near the hospital.

Although Daddy said she couldn't cook when they got married and they ate peanut butter sandwiches for the first year, she learned to cook and do it in grand style. In the typical Coffey tradition, she was a wonderful cook, It runs in the Coffey blood! Her sisters were all great cooks too. Beatrice used to cook huge meals, feasts really, in the summer when we had hands helping with harvest and cousins staying with us.

When they were first married Bea told Sim that she did not like her name and so he said "Well, we will change it." From that day on he called her "Annabel".

She had a great sense of humor and liked people. Sometimes she was a little shy at first. She was widowed when she was in her early 40's and she moved to Erick. She always had a garden. On the farm it was a big garden. Even in town, she planted more than she could ever eat so she could give it to her friends and relatives.

She loved her family. Her children, grandchildren & great grands were her life. She was an unselfish person and would do anything to help people. In her diary there was noted that almost daily she was making a pie or cookies for someone to brighten their day. She was her happiest when her family was around.

Emmitt (Leroy) Tipton, the husband of her niece, Glenda, gave the following eulogy at her funeral at the First Baptist Church in Erick OK. in August of 1996.
As his eulogy shows, Leroy knew Mama well

Eulogy:
Almost 27 years ago, I married my wife, Glenda. After only a few short weeks of marriage, she told me she wanted to go to Oklahoma. When I asked her why, she said, "to see Aunt Bea". Thus began my association with Aunt Bea.

Aunt Bea was a strong lady. Born in 1921, she was only seven years old when her father died. She, along with her brothers and sisters, were raised by their mother during the great depression. They undoubtedly endured many hardships during this time. In 1939, she married Sim and they moved south of Erick to farm. At the same time, she was mother to her two daughters, and aunt to several nieces and nephews. It was fun going to Aunt Bea's house. In 1958, the farm home burned and the family moved west of Erick. In 1966, her husband died, and she lived alone for the last thirty years of her life. She endured health problems in her latter years, but through all these hardships, she never complained.

By the world's definition, Aunt Bea was not a wealthy woman. But she found her riches in those things most precious to her. Sherry and Irma were her life. She loved them beyond measure. She loved her sons in law, Alex and John. And Bodie loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Even while she was so sick she could tell you about "Big Time". If you look on the north wall of her living room, you will see all of the family pictures hanging there for all to see.

She loved her brothers and sisters. The handkerchief she is holding, belonged to her sister, Ina. Aunt Bea enjoyed coming to Plainview to visit Ina.

She cared about her friends, as evidenced by her concern that the nurses and workers at the nursing home were spending too much time caring for her.

She loved Erick and her garden. When I would offer to come get her and take her to Plainview, she would say she couldn't be gone from home. If it was winter, she needed to be home to keep things from freezing up, and if it was summer, she needed to be home to tend to her garden.

She loved her music, as evidenced by the music being sung in this service today. She kept her record player, and later her tape player, in her room where she could listen to it at night.

She loved her Lord and was quick to talk about her personal relationship with Him. On her collar today is the guardian angel which was pinned to her curtain in her room at the home.

We as a family have such sweet memories of her. Don't lose those memories. Keep them present in your mind.

To all of us present, but especially to Irma and Sherry, I think she would say "Thanks for loving me. Thanks for opening your homes to me and taking care of me. Thanks for being the light of my life and making my life rich beyond measure."
