Birth: Mar. 30, 1918
Milwaukee County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Dec. 1, 2009
Milwaukee County
Wisconsin, USA

Beatrice was valedictorian of her graduating class at Milwaukee's Riverside High School. In her teens, she won a prestigious national competition to study under the great master teacher and conductor, Rudolf Ganz, in Chicago. She then continued on to win numerous national and state piano performance awards. During WWII she performed a weekly classical radio show. Besides giving concerts, Beatrice taught a multitude of students in piano and composition. Many of her students went on to successful careers in music themselves. Beatrice was the first piano teacher in Wisconsin certified to offer High School credits in Music through private study and worked brilliantly with special needs students. Her accomplishments in the field of music were only surpassed by her dedication, love, loyalty, and inspiration that she passed on to her numerous descendents.

She was preceded in death by her husband Harry Karan. She is survived by her three children, ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
