Beatrice Roberta Valverde

Beatrice Roberta Valverde, 86, peacefully joined her heavenly Father on October 12, 2021, surrounded by her family. She was born on May 5, 1935 in Eureka, Kansas, to John and Inocencia "Ginger" (Elias) Escareno. Beatrice had six children that she raised, and loved dearly. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was proud of her Mexican heritage, spoke Spanish, and was a master cook of authentic Mexican food. Beatrice passed all of those recipes on to her family, and taught them her skills. She enjoyed keeping in touch with family and friends, shopping, going out to eat, TOPS club, volunteering, decorating, dancing and crafting. Bea needed to stay busy! Since the tragic death of her son Mark in 1999, her dream of being with him again came true on Tuesday. They are surely rejoicing together! Beatrice often spent time at the cemetery visiting Mark's and her husband's graves. She also spent time in the cemetery in Eureka, visiting her parent's and siblings' gravesites. Beatrice was also very active in her parish at St. Anne Catholic Church. She loved and lived her faith. She will be deeply missed by her parish community. She is preceded in death by her son, Mark Valverde; husband, Martin Valverde; brothers, Edward, Pete, Steve, Joe, and Joe Lawrence Escareno; and sister, Mary Hileman. She is survived by her children, Phillip John (Susan) Escareno, Victoria "Vicki" (Paul) Rush, Patricia "Trish" Quaid, Paul "Tony" A. (Melissa McLoughlin) Valverde, and Andrea (David) Brant; brother, Phillip Escareno; sister, Dolores (Jim) Ball; 15 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren. A rosary and mass were held at St. Anne Catholic Church. Committal has taken place at Lakeview Cemetery. A memorial has been established in her name at St. Anne Catholic Church located at 2801 S. Seneca, Wichita, KS, 67217, and donations may be made online at the St. Anne Catholic Church website.
