Beatrice Mae Trent, 87, of Port Clinton, passed away peacefully at her home on Feb. 25. She was born in Saylersville, Ky. on March 2, 1934, the daughter of Beecher and Maudie (Howard) Triplett. Beatrice married Dale Trent in Saylersville, on Nov. 21, 1951, and he preceded her in death on January 8, 2013.
Beatrice was a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who looked after her family with the love of a true Christian. She was a long-time member of Potter’s Clay Fellowship, in Port Clinton, where she did charitable work with fellow members. She enjoyed quilting and embroidery work and had received blue ribbons for her work at the county fair. She created many bedspreads and lap blankets for friends and family. Beatrice enjoyed traveling all over the United States and recently had traveled to New York City and Niagara Falls with her daughters. She also looked forward to gardening, canning, and working jig saw puzzles. Beatrice was also an avid reader, reading anything that struck her fancy, most time she ended up reading a book a day!
