She was born June 26, 1933, near Ardath, SK.  After graduation from high school, she attended Normal School in Saskatoon.  She met Norm in her first year of teaching and they were married in 1953 and lived, farmed and raised their family near Vanscoy where they were deeply involved in all aspects of community life.  Bea actively farmed beside Norm until she returned to the work force as Village Administrator in Vanscoy until her retirement in 1998.  Between the Saskatchewan Flying Farmers and calling Square Dances, Norm and Bea made friends across the province and country. Throughout life, Bea eagerly anticipated any and all gatherings with the Ogilvie family.
