Beatriz (Rodrigues) Bergeron, age 59, of Cumberland, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the Rhode Island Hospital, Providence. She was the beloved wife of Richard E. Bergeron and they had been married for the past 34 years.

Beatriz was full of life, she enjoyed concerts with her husband, going to the movies, and watching her Boston sports teams, especially the Bruins. An avid animal lover, she was dedicated to caring for her family and provided them the strength to persevere no matter the circumstances. Having traveled the world, Bea always made her house a home for those around her. Those who love her will always remember her easy going nature, her vivescence, and her unconditional love for her family. Blessed with an angels' smile and a huge heart, she could be counted on to lend comfort and to pray constantly for those in need.
