Born in Canada on AuguBeatrice Stout clrst 10, 1939, Bea eventually found her way to Long Beach MS in 1977 where she earned her GED, became a U.S. citizen and met her sweetheart (Bert) while attending a square dance. Their graceful footwork and Bea’s petticoats a’swish’n were noticed and fondly remembered by fellow members of Belles & Boys Dance Club and Tic Toc Round Dance Club, as well as by guests sitting on the sideline watching two beautiful dancers as they gracefully moved across the dance floor.
After retiring from Turan-Foley Motors in Gulfport, Bea enjoyed her hobbies which included oil painting, cross-stitching, quilting, keeping up with family and friends on FaceBook, reading mystery books, and watching the music programs on RFD TV with Bert. Bea was also known for cooking THE BEST ever red beans and rice south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Bea’s family invites friends to attend a celebration of her life on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from noon until 4 p.m. at the Lyman Senior Center located at 14592 County Farm Road in Gulfport, MS. Light refreshments will be provided. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice in her memory.
