Beatrice Espinoza (affectionately referred to by those who knew her as Grandma Bea,) lived a life of service. She rarely thought of herself and not a day went by that she was not serving another human. She was very modest, humble, had a strong faith in God and one of strongest spirits anyone has ever witnessed.
She was a nurse for 20 years, taught special education for an additional 20 years and was instrumental in creating a program called the Corazon program within Davis County. She initiated a grant that gave her an opportunity to offer classes to “at risk youth” in the community. In turn, impacting and influencing several young people to create a brighter future for themselves. She received the Jon Huntsman “Excellence in Education” award along with many other service-oriented awards throughout her lifetime.
More than anything she was a mom, grandma, great-grandma, friend and confidant to many. She faithfully prayed for every single person she knew and wanted everyone she met to know and trust God.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the Atlas home health care hospice providers. Barbara Reid, her amazing nurse, Tanya Grenada, her kind shower-aid, Norma, her sweet volunteer visitor, and Ross Thomas, her very talented musical therapist. Also, Sam Carter with Weber Human Services and every angel at Raintree Assisted Living who loved and cared for her over the last six years.
She is survived by Dennis (Cheryl) Espinoza, David (Louise) Espinoza, Dale (Julie) Espinoza, Donna (Andrew) Miner, Don Espinosa as well as 16 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made at any Key Bank location to “The Living Corazon”, the nonprofit organization created in her honor.
