Tribute

Beatrice Marion Hobbs, 91

Beatrice Marion Hobbs, 91, joined her husband, Edward Bott in heaven on December 16, 2020. Bea was born on November 24, 1929 to Charles and Grace Hobbs in Miles City, Montana.

Bea and Ed were married on September 19, 1948 in Miles City and were blessed later with three children. They lived in Miles City and Rosebud until moving to Columbia Falls in 1964. She then worked for B&B grocery in the bakery department where she learned to decorate cakes and went on to craft beautiful wedding cakes from her home. She also worked at Kruger Drug and later retired from Stoick Drug as a bookkeeper.

Bea most enjoyed spending time with family. She spent many summers camping with Ed and their children near where he would be located working in the woods. One of her biggest joys was being around her grandchildren. Baking and playing games was always on the agenda when children were around. She enjoyed traveling with family to places all over including Hawaii and Mexico. She loved to visit and stay with her out of state family.

Over the years, she loved making special occasion cakes for family and friends. Her wedding cakes were spectacular and she continued this into her 80s. She also had a knack for sewing and quilting. She handmade multiple halloween costumes for her children and grandchildren and gifted quilts to many loved ones.

Bea was a very devoted member of St. Matthews / All Saints’ Episcopal Church. She was a treasurer for many years and loved to participate in church activities. She enjoyed bible study as well as preparing the church for Sunday service and coffee hour gatherings.

Bea is survived by her children, Cathy Bott, Ray Bott and Donna DiTunno; grandchildren, Haven Kingsbury, Amanda Mata and Vincent DiTunno; great-grandchildren, Mikayla Thomas, Hailey Thomas, Javien Mata, Natalia Mata and Caidan Kingsbury as well as many nieces and nephews.
