Upon leaving the Marion Hatcher Center, she worked with Posey Funeral Directors where she held the position of Office Administrator. Working with Posey's, she learned about the funeral profession, of which her family has been a part of for many years..
Reaching early retirement age and realizing there may be an opportunity to be closer to her family roots, Bea approached her brother, Foster, with the desire to assist him in the business aspect of the Curtis Funeral Home, which has resulted in her making a transition back to her home town.
She presently works in the business office and assists her brother, Foster, as needed.
Bea is a proud mother and grandmother. Her daughter and son-in-law, Danielle and James Mitchell and Rylie Jane are her pride and joy.. She enjoys attending Sanctuary Church in Evans, spending time with her family and is presently making the transition from life in Augusta back to her roots.
