In loving memory...Bee

Bee Born KortumEd's mother, Bernice Crince Born Kortum, known to everyone as Bee.

Bee was a great gal. She spent most of her life in Chicago, where she worked in supermarkets for many years. Later she and Ed's dad ran a neighborhood tavern together, an environment that suited Bee's big personality to a tee.

In retirement Bee loved spending time with her many friends in Florida. She was a master at a variety of needlecrafts, most notably crochet, and everyone who knew her had at least one piece of her handiwork.

She died on New Year's Day 1995.
