Bea was known to love Elvis Presley and was pleasantly surprised to be taken to Graceland by her son Ruben and daughter Annette on more than one occasion. She often took trips to Kentucky to see the Gurrolla family, and New Mexico to see the Vegara family. Bea collected duck figurines and her favorite color was green.
