Beatrice Edith (Lemon) Tremblay: Obituary


This is the story of Beatrice Edith (Lemon) Tremblay. Beatrice was an amazing woman, mother, grandmother and daughter who was very much loved, is already missed and will be forever cherished.
Beatrice’s story started in the small town of Ware Massachusetts where on May 24, 1924 she was born the second to the youngest to Arthur and Louise Lemon. She lived her life in the same town, the same house until after graduating high school, she left to attend nursing school in Boston Massachusetts. Here is where she met the love of her life having been set up on a blind date with the brother of one of her patients. It was a whirlwind romance and ended with her flying to where her betrothed was stationed in Denver Colorado to get married. It was a standing joke in our household as to how she chased him down and how, on the very day they got married, Roland, her now husband and flight engineer in the Air Force took flight and crashed. After three days, she finally learned of his safety and they went on to have four children and their first home in Marlboro, Mass.
Beatrice was known for her positive attitude, winning smile, and love for her family and friends. She was strong willed and a fighter to the very end. She passed peacefully at her home in Mineral Bluff, Georgia on December 1, 2019.
She was predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Roland Tremblay and her son, Roland Tremblay Jr. She is survived by her three daughters and their partners, Donna Tremblay and Christine Kohl of Holly Springs, Georgia, Paula Tremblay and Melissa Morrissette of Mineral Bluff, Georgia and Shari (Tremblay) Evans and husband Daniel Evans of Blairsville, Georgia along with two grandchildren, Jonathan Evans and Aysel Tremblay.
Committal Service to be held in the chapel of the Henry Cochran Funeral Home in Blue Ridge Georgia on Friday, December 6 at 2 pm. Interment to follow at the Crestlawn Cemetery in Copperhill, Tennessee.
