Mrs. Bea Waters at the young age of 97 passed away at her home on Tuesday 6/7/2022 peacefully. I met Mrs. Bea many years ago as the Center City Conservatives Republican Club began meeting in 1992 at Waters Market and Grill (Mr. Herb and Mrs. Bea owned and ran it) in the Beaumont Community of Knoxville, TN. Mrs. Bea was the Treasurer of the club from inception of the club until about 8 years ago.

The arrangements are receiving of friends tomorrow (Sunday 6/12/2022 and a burial on Monday 6/13/2022) I have included her obituary below the photo of Ms. Bea and I back in 2011 that our (she and I) friend Ernie Brewster took and placed on Facebook.
