A Rosary will be held Thursday, December 1, 2016 at 6:00 pm at Memorial Park Funeral Home. Services are under the direction of Memorial Park Funeral Home. She was born on May 18, 1929 in Nara Visa, NM to Marcello M. Sandoval and Ofelia Trujillo Sandoval. She grew up in Nara Visa; where she was the youngest of 11 children, attended school there and graduated as Valedictorian.

Bea worked for Cloth World for 15 years, then went to work at Cal Farley's Boy's Ranch for 22 years and retired. She loved to sew; she made most of her daughter's clothes and even her wedding dress. Her backyard was her sanctuary. She had the most beautiful backyard with roses, crepe myrtles, tulip tress, zinnias, geraniums, irises, cannas, and many more flowers. She loved to watch NASCAR and the Texas Rangers.
Her family was an important part of her life. She attended functions of her kids, grandkids and even her great grandkids. She loved all of them so much. Bea had the kindest heart, and was always rooting for the underdog.
Bea is preceded in death by her parents; brothers; Pete, Senon, Leto, Charlie, 2 infant boys; sisters, Tillie, Lena, Cecelia, Rena, and her Beloved husband Harry Dale and a daughter in law Carol Juanita George.
