Devout in her faith and committed to her family, Bea often showed her devotion through hand-made rosary beads and lovingly prepared meals. She reached out to friends and her community through church and civic organizations, and always made time for her faithful companion, Smokey. She will be remembered always in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Pontani Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to
The Sunshine Foundation
In the 1960’s, Philadelphia police officer Bill Sample was assigned to a local children’s hospital. He encountered critically ill, and often terminally ill, children and saw first-hand how these children’s families were burdened not only by mounting medical bills, but also by the frustration of not being able to provide their children’s special dream. In 1976, Bill took out a personal loan and, with the help of others, started Sunshine Foundation and began making dreams come true for these truly deserving children. Sunshine Foundation’s sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.
Bea was actively involved with The Sunshine Foundation. A donation in her name would he an honor to her memory and help the foundation carry on the good works that Bea truly cared about.
