Anna Beatrice Shinn Reik
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 16, 1905
Death: 1972

(Anna) Beatrice Shinn was born at Hartford, NJ on July 16, 1905. She graduated from Princeton High School in 1922, Trenton School of Industrial Arts in 1923 and later the Yale University School of Architecture.

She worked at the College Entrance Examination Board in Princeton before attending Yale. She married Louis E. Reik at Ridgebury, NY (at the home of her sister, Dorothy, whose husband, Leslie was a Presbyterian Minister).

She lived at her mother's house at 24 Maple Street during the WWII, while Louis was in the military. After the war she moved to the grounds of Butler Hospital in Providence RI while Louis took psychiatric education. While there she and Louis remodelled an existing matress factory building and the project was favorably written up in decorating magazines.

When Louis returned to Princeton to join the medical staff Bea and Louis purchased a house in Pennington, where she lived until her death.

Bea and Louis had one child who died before birth.

Note: It is interesting to note that all three of the children of Wilbert and Hettie Shinn chose to use their middle names rather than their first names. (FWS)
