They raised 3 daughters and lived the ranch life for 28 years. In 1981, they moved into the village of Fort Sumner but continued their ranching operations for many more years. Bea was very active in the Fort Sumner community serving on her Methodist church boards, attending the Senior Center and serving on its board, playing bridge, and having coffee dates with her many friends.
