Beatrice liked old country and gospel music, going to legion dances, playing bingo, and she was a member of the Golden Age Club. Her true passion was her love of animals. She would rescue, nurture and care for any animal in need. Her home was always full of animal friends.

Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her sister, Lorene Peterson (Hugh); and brother, Burpee Pond.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the loving care of York Funeral Home, 302 Brookside Drive, Fredericton. At Beatrice’s request, there will be no public services at this time. A Graveside Service will be held at a later date in Lower Durham Cemetery. For those who wish, remembrances may be made to the Fredericton SPCA or the charity of the donor’s choice.
