Beatrice spent her younger years in Socorro, New Mexico, then attended University of New Mexico Normal in Albuquerque graduating in 1906. While there she met her husband, Willard Perkins, through her classmate, Blanche, Willard's sister. She taught in mission schools as did her mother and grandmother. She was fluent in Mexican Spanish and loved the music. She and Willard were married Sept 18, 1912 in Richmond, CA where her mother and grandparents were living. B's mother and husband both died in 1919 leaving her with 2 small children. Her only relative was an aunt who lived in Dos Rios, CA, so she and the children moved there. They all moved to Covelo where she taught in the elementary school. She married George Goforth in 1923 and he passed away a few years later. Beatrice possessed a beautiful soprano voice and was in demand for every wedding, funeral, or program. She was active in the Covelo Federated Church, the Women's Club, and Augusta Chapter OES. She married Charles Lovell around 1937. She assisted Charlie in his mortuary business. They enjoyed travelling and made 2 auto trips around the US. B also visited her son, Rev Rodger Perkins, a Presbyterian missionary, and his family in Brazil.

Community minded, Beatrice organized many progams and celebrations, the largest of which were the opening of the Dos Rios bridge in the early 1940's and the Round Valley Centennial in 1954.
