Much of her early years were spent in the Bransford Community of Sumner County, TN. On June 30, 1951 she married the love of her life, Wesley Guy Carter. Two loving daughters were born to this union, Linda Carol and Deborah Gay.
Beatrice, aka, "Mama Bea" loved her family. She devoted much of her time to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her door was always open and the table was always full. Mama Bea loved the Lord and was an active member of Rocky Mound Missionary Baptist Church. She was retired from Texas Boot Company in Hartsville, TN with over 30 years of service. After retirement she developed a love for quilting and that love quickly turned into a passion as she made hundreds of quilts for family and friends.
Mama Bea loved mother nature and God's beauty. she loved birds and flowers, and for those that knew her, knew that the Great Smoky Mountains was her favorite vacation spot. Many times she would travel with family and friends for an extended weekend or sometimes just a day trip to see the color of the trees.
