Beatrice A. (Recine) Grant

Beatrice A. (Recine) Grant, 77, lovingly known as “Bea”, devoted wife of Daniel E. Grant, passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on Monday, March 23, 2020, after a brief battle with cancer.

Bea was born in Ipswich on March 30, 1942 and was the daughter of the late Ralph R. Recine and Thelma M. (Fowler) May.  She attended Ipswich schools, graduated from Bay State Academy and later worked at Metropolitan Life in Boston.  After marrying the love of her life, Bea stayed home to raise her two children. She later returned to the workforce working at Hills Department Store and Pierce Furniture Factory as their office manager.  During her retirement, she treasured her time with her grandsons, often taking them on “adventures” at The Trustees of Reservations properties.  She enjoyed camping, gardening, boating and painting.

Bea loved meeting new people, she had a genuine interest in their lives and to all was a strong, patient and caring person. Bea was loved by her family and friends and adored by all who were fortunate to have known her.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter Karen A. Civitarese and her husband Jeffery of Beverly, her son Daniel H. Grant and his wife Merethe of Groveland and by her grandsons Jonas and Finn Grant. She is also survived by her sisters Anne Wilhelm of VA, Patricia Walsh of Lynn and brother John Recine of NH.  She was predeceased by her sister Claudia Chapman of Amesbury.

A memorial service will be announced and held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you please consider a memorial contribution in her name to a charity of your choice.
