Memories Timeline


  1. Figlioli Family: You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We will always remember your mom as kind and loving. She was always more concerned for the well-being of others than herself. May she rest in peace.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a great mother, and will be truly missed. Her pain is over and she is happy again. Her memories are forever.

  3. Dear Figioli family, Sending heartfelt prayers and sympathy on the loss of your mother. The obituary says it all, Bea was a vital part of SHM. I have many fond memories of her from over the years. This Christmas she celebrates it all with your father as one of the saints around God’s throne! Love & prayers, Stas’ Tuchalski

  4. Bea will forever exist in the many great memories I have of her. She was the first person to approach me about helping me with my Polish and persuaded me to take her [and Theresa Nogay’s] Polish class at Sacred Heart of Mary. I was 24 [at the time] and in a class with 16 third through fifth graders. I had a blast and learned so much – it helped me survive through many years of proper pronounciations!! When I’d sing with the choir, she’d stand next to me and give me accolades after listening to me “sing it right.” She LOVED her heritage and was proud to share it. What a legacy – she was a beautiful lady who gave much to her parish in so many ways. I know she and Tony are drinking red wine and celebrating Christmas together this year. Not only did she nurture her family, she nurtured her parish family as well. Thank you, Bea, for all you have given me. I will forever be grateful and I will never sing a Polish song or hear Polish spoken without thinking of you.

  5. Our hearts, sympathy and love are with the entire Figlioli family in this time of loss of a wonderful mother and grandmother. May she rest in peace and live in your hearts forever. God Bless. with love, Ryan and Julie Christ

  6. Rita, Maria, Mike, Dolores and family, I am so sorry for you all. It is so painful not being able to be there for you. Bea was a wonderful, sweet, beautiful person so full of love for everyone. This will be the saddest Christmas ever. Bea, say “Hi” to my Mom for me. Love you all.

  7. So saddened to hear of Bea’s passing. The family has our sympathy…She and her husband, Tony, were a couple we all looked up to and they were so inspiring to us in their faith and helping their parish and others… We have a few more angels watching over us now and we ask Our Lord to now keep Bea and Tony’s family close to His Heart during this sad time. We loved them both dearly.

  8. Dear Family, We are so very saddened to learn of Bea’s passing away. I have known her from childhood..we were friends as well in all of our years at SHM…She was truly a “special” person and will be missed terribly. May all of you feel the presence of our Heavenly Father during this most difficult time of grieving. Our sympathy goes out to all of you. Sincerely, Stan and Fran Sagan

  9. Rita I just want to send you my sympathies on the loss of your mom. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I don’t think I will be able to pay my respects in person, because I recently lost my mom, and I don’t know if I am ready to go into a funeral home yet.

  10. Dear Rita, Jason and family, My prayers are with you as you face the loss of a beautiful woman in your lives. Bea was a very special lady and I have very fond memories of her and Tony on our street as we grew up. You have certainly had a lot of loss in the past few years. I pray that you are comforted by our loving Lord and your loved ones around you. You will all be reunited again one day. I know that Bea is now dancing in heaven with her beloved husband and Jesus! Love and prayers, Carrie

  12. Sorry to hear about Bea.Bea,Marge, Ida Mary Lou and I always worked in the kitchen at Sacred Heart till I moved to KS. Her and Tony were great people. I loved working with her, she was a lot of fun. May God be with you in your time of need. Love Jean.

  13. We remember so vividly all the years Bea and Mrs. Nellie Wieloh hovered over the school children at lunchtime…..providing those lunches was their labor of love! Bea always wore a beautiful smile and was a beautiful person who will be missed by all.
