Beatrice was a great supporter of Be the Change NJ, and the Facebook group "HOPE". She made any contributions to these organizations that she could, and especially enjoyed providing them with leads for possible donations, used to help those in greatest need. An avid user of social media, Bea scoured groups and individuals for potential donors. She touched many people by these acts of kindness. Beatrice also treasured time spent fishing, and was a fan of Alex Trebek, having enjoyed watching his shows, especially "Classic Concentration".

Bea was a very giving person. She lovingly helped her son through a childhood illness, caring for him when he needed her the most.

Beatrice was the loving mother of Steven Poultney; and dear sister of David Renken. She was predeceased by her brother Charles Renken and by her sister Audrey Davidow.
