Ken Celic from Geneva, IL

"So very sorry to learn of Bea's passing. As VP Human Resources at Liquid Container Corp, I hired Bea "back in the day" and she was one of the best administrative employees at LCC we ever had. Bea always had a smile on her face, worked very diligently, and was well-liked and respected by all of her co-workers. Bea's radiance and long tenure went a long way toward contributing to a "Golden Age" at Liquid Container. Rest in peace, Bea... you will be missed by all! Ken Celic"
