" We always celebrated her birthday on Sept 1st . Beatrice smoked a pipe from a very young child until she passed. She enjoyed watching old movies on Dialing for dollars and game shows. She spoke gypsy dialect with my Dad and only taught us grandchildren a few words. She was quite superstitious at times. She was a very sweet Granny to all her Grandchildren. We miss her.
