I remember Aunt Bea being the first to dance at parties and events, of course paired with her excellent partner, Uncle Everett. Boy did they make a great couple. We all will miss her contagious laugh.

We last saw her and Uncle Everett at Pat Figge's birthday party last year. Glad that we were able to spend some time with her then. She was a sweet and kind woman who dearly loved her husband, kids, grandkids and family at large. She will certainly be missed but her memory lives on...

Bea was a very special lady. She was always smiling and laughing which I loved. Her soft sweet voice that you cant forget. I remember her making her salad with lots of veggies plus Ranch and Italian dressing it was so good. Bea will always hold a special place in our hearts.

To the family of Beatrice Joy Lyster:
I would like to express my condolences in your loss. From reading the obituary I can image that Beatrice was a exceptional person who loved life and who has left behind a host of memories. There are never any words to make the pain of death any easier to accept but I have found comfort at this difficult time in the pages of the Bible. At Revelation 21:3 and 4 it talks about a time in the near future when God promises to wipe out all the tears from our eyes and sickness and death will be no more. Having that hope for the future can comfort us in our sadness during this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss.

I met BJ in 2007. We were best friend from the start. We loved to play golf, shop and a lot of giggling. We called golf hit & giggle. Our husbands became best friends &still golf together to this day. I was her kitties Auntie. She convinced me to be on the golf board. There is a big void in my heart. She loved her family & friends so much. 5:00 PM was her favorite time of the day. Cocktail hour!! Love, KIM Wylie

My fondest memory of Mom.....that's a hard one. First off she was my mother-in-law but felt like a mom to me. I guess since I can't pick out my fondest memory, I will say why I loved her so. From the first time I met her, December 25th, 1997 to her last breath, she always made me feel welcomed and loved. We could talk for hours and also be very comfortable not saying a word. I loved her because she treated my daughter like her own blood grandchild, even before I married her son. Her heart was full of love and generosity.
I remember her teaching me how to cook the family recipe that dated back to the OK Corral days, Chili Con Carne and homemade flour tortillas. We would spend hours in the kitchen shaping and frying the tortillas while the boys were out golfing, laughing and sharing stories.
She was a special lady and I will miss her dearly. I love you, mom.
