We were sorry to hear of your mom's passing. We got to know your mom when she lived at Washington St. apts in Castile. My parents Art & Helen Bush were good friends of her. Then they all ended up in Eastside together. Bea was a lovely woman. Always a smile on her face. Will always have fond memories of her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. Jim & Pat Bauer

Dear Family, I was so sad to learn of Mrs. Chamberlain's passing. She always had a smile on her face and was so kind to everyone. I am sure she is smiling all the way to heaven. I would not have guessed that she was 97. She will be greatly missed but will live on forever in everyones hearts. We have you in our thoughts and prayers. God bless.
