Bea Larkin - Obituary


eatrice Carol Elizabeth Rieman Larkin, lovingly known as "Bea", 94, entered into Heaven on October 25, 2022. Born to the late Ralph and Elizabeth Rieman on February 15, 1928 in Buffalo, NY, Bea proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1950 to 1954. She met and married her late husband, Robert Larkin, while stationed at Patuxent River Naval Air Station. They remained married for 42 years. Bea was a devoted mother, grandmother and great- grandmother. She is survived by her seven children: Christopher Larkin, Jeffrey Larkin, Jill Robertson, Timothy Larkin, Victoria Peake, Nicolette Larkin, and Andrea Larkin. She is also survived by eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Bea was a devout Catholic and faithfully attended the same church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, for 60 years. She was an incredibly sweet, loving, and generous human being. She enjoyed arts and crafts, camping and travel, sailing, yard sales, playing bridge at the senior center, retreats with friends, and was an avid fan of the Blue Angels. Bea's greatest legacy was living a wholesome life, one of grace, dignity, and devotion to God. Her spiritual guidance and morals instilled her children with her genuine love of family and community. Her welcoming spirit was always an open invitation to all in her home. Her love and kindness will live in in her family’s hearts forever. A visitation will be held on Wednesday, November 9, from 11:30am to 12:30pm, followed by Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 515 Loch Haven Rd, Edgewater, MD. Burial will take place at 2:30 p.m. at the Maryland Veterans Cemetery in Crownsville. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Dixon House, 108 North Higgins Street, Easton, Maryland 21601, www.dixonhouse.org.
