Edwina ‘Bea’ Tate
Edwina "Bea" Tate passed from this life on Feb. 21, 2017 at the age of 83. Bea was born in Pampa, but moved to Odessa at an early age, where she graduated from Odessa High School. She was the only child of Seth Thomas Beauchamp and Louise Beauchamp who have preceded her in death.
Bea loved life, her friends, her family, her church and many she considered as family. She was generous to all and always willing to help others in any way she could. She brightened the lives of many and was a dearly beloved mother. Her absence from this life will leave an unfillable void.
We look forward to a heavenly reunion with her.
Bea is survived by her only child, Thomas Tate and his wife Claudia of Graham; one granddaughter, Jennifer LeBrae of Bedford; great-granddaughters, Kloe LeBrae of Bedford and Evvan Smith of College Station; and her beloved dog and constant lap companion, “Sassy.”
A graveside service were held at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 24, at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Odessa.
