Beatrice "Bea" Batchelor
Age 96, of Minneapolis, passed away on September 30, 2022. Bea is survived by her four children, Diane Marie Rosevear, George Rosevear, Joseph Rosevear (Debra) and Thomas Rosevear; nephews, Randal Nelson (Amanda) and Donald Nelson (Patty); step-children, Elizabeth Peterson, Robert Batchelor (Kris), Barbara Batchelor, Polly Zabel (Allan), Willis Batchelor (Kwinam), Mary Lark; ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husbands, John Rosevear and Jack Batchelor; her parents, Albert Bridenstine and Clara (Howard); brother, Harold; sister, Grace (Nelson); and daughter-in-law, (married to George) Diane Elaine Rosevear.
Her joy in life was always singing ballads, hymns, and anthems-in choirs even into her nineties. Reading satisfied her many interests and great curiosity about all of life. She was ever thankful for the heartfelt care she received at Walker Care Suites in Edina. Private services have been held.
