Beatrice L. Stocking Ryniec, 96, of Roswell, passed away on July 28, 2012. She was born on Sept. 21, 1915, in Polo, Ill., to Beryl and Etta Stocking. She married Martin J. Ryniec on Sept. 23, 1933, who preceded her in death. They had three children together, Beryl (spouse Leroy Daliege), Martin David, and Keith Steven (Kathy); all three children have preceded her in death. She was one of four children, brother Lawrence Stocking, sister Viola (Forrest) Dozier, who have also preceded her in death. She is survived by one brother Robert (Dianne) Stocking who lives in Indiana. Grandma Bea as she was known to everyone was responsible for a pilot program in Illinois. She was a director of a work experience program for former mental patients which she took pride in before she retired and moved to Roswell in 1971. Over the years she kept herself busy with numerous activities which included, Red Hat Club, Four I Club and her luncheons at Peppers with her dear friends from Sunrise Estates, the mobile home park where she lived many years. Grandma Bea loved to wear her jewelry and occupied her Thursday afternoons with her weekly visits to Best Beauty shop for more than 30 years. Among many of Grandma Bea’s hobbies she loved to travel and had the privilege of seeing the beauty of all but three of the 50 states, but the most enjoyable hobby she had was reading, she loved to relax in her recliner and read every day.
