Beatrice was born in Stokes County, near King NC, to Claty Roy and Lummie Boyles-Allen on June 18, 1912. She was educated in the High Point Public School System. She was a devoted Mother and housewife all of her life.
She enjoyed attending church at North Main Baptist Church, taught Sunday School and sang in the choir there for twenty-two years. She opened the first nursery and served as secretary of the WMU. She was lately a member of Westchester Baptist Church. She loved to write poetry, some of which was published in the High Point Enterprise.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph Sechrest and eight siblings.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Westchester Baptist Church, P. O. Box 5188, High Point, NC 27262. The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff of Shannon Gray Center for the care and devotion shown to Mrs. Sechrest during her stay there.
