Bea was a homemaker for most of her life and in the years leading up to her retirement worked as a home health aide for the Visiting Nurses Association. She had a variety of interests and talents including gardening, ice skating, golf and bowling. She was an avid reader, especially of People Magazine and could always keep us up to date with the latest Hollywood gossip. She loved going to movies and watching television.
Beatrice is survived by her sons, Peter (Mary Anne) Cureau, Steven (Kathy) Cureau; daughter, Aimee Kearns and sister, Agnes Callaghan. She was “Nana Bea” to her three loving grandsons, Ryan Cureau, Chase Cureau and Tyler Cureau and “Aunt Bea” to her many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff at the E3 Medical and Surgical Unit at Albany Medical Center for the care and compassion shown in her short stay there. Bea spent the last 10 years at Riverside Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Castleton. That became her home and the staff there became her extended family. The dignity, kindness and love she received throughout her stay there is a testament to the dedication of the staff. Our family would like to extend their gratitude and sincere thanks to all those at Riverside Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing, who took excellent care of Bea over the last 10 years.
Friends and family are invited to attend a wake on Monday, July 29 from 4:30pm-6:00pm followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 6:00pm at St. Mary’s Church, Crescent, 86 Church Hill Road, Waterford, NY.
