    My mother was Dorothy Kreuder. Her parents and Bea’s parents were friends and that is how we came to know each other. As the years went by, Bea attended many of our NY and NJ gatherings. I admired her as a working women in a time when she was forging a path of her own. May she now rest in peace. Condolences to the family.

  2. Tom Kreuder says:

    Bea was a family favorite to all of us, Kreuders. When I was in minor seminary, St. Joseph’s College at Princeton in the mid 1950s, we had an annual fundraiser for which we sold chances for one grand prize. Bea raised close to a hundred dollars selling chances to her coworkers. May she be smiling in heaven with her mom and dad….
