Bea Jones Lammers passed on Sunday, March 26, 2023 of pulmonary complications. She was preceded in death by her son, Steven and her husband, Len.
Bea was raised in Pipestone, Minnesota and along with her grandparents William and Beatrice Burns, spent many a summer performing as Minnehaha in the Hiawatha pageant. She went on to Macalister in Minneapolis to earn her Registered Nurses degree. She then took her first job in Hawaii where she would meet Len, her devoted husband of 61 years.
Bea later earned a Masters in Counseling and had a successful and rewarding career. She was one of the most treasured wives, mothers and friends that ever graced the earth. She always had a smile and a shoulder available and was a truly gracious lady.
Her sense of humor healed many a bruised heart through the years and she will be missed by all those lucky enough to have known her.
She is survived by her daughter, Laura Bea Lammers; her brother, Bill Burns; her granddaughter, Julia Beatrice Lammers; and her daughter-in-law, Naoko Lammers.
Bea's remains were laid to rest in the Old Woodlawn Cemetery in Pipestone at the site of her parents, William and Beatrice Burns' graves.
