I am so sorry for your loss. My friend Barb Penner z"l and I worked with Bea about 35-40 years ago in the offices of Dr. Len Epstein at WPIC. She was a dear person and I have remembered her fondly all these years. My fondest memory is how she would, way before this was in fashion, take off her work shoes, tie on her sneakers, and spend her lunch hour briskly walking the streets and hills of Oakland! She was kind, and firm, and smart. I will miss her.
