    I am so sorry for the family’s loss. I have great memories of bingo and the moose and Beanie. My life is better for having known her. My prayers are with you.

  15. Jan McGill February 22, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    I have so many memories of Beanie and the fun we always had volunteering at the Moose Lodge. A special one is that whether it was requested by anyone else or not, we would just start harmonizing on Sentimental Journey. I shall always think of Beanie when I hear that song and remember the special lady she always was and how very many lives she touched and brightened.

    Best wishes to all of Beanie’s family and friends – Jan McGill
