Beatrice Weaver Metcalf was born August 7,1923 in Beartown Pennsylvania to Benjamin and Elsie Weaver.
Beatrice grew up on a farm in a close, loving family surrounded by eight brothers and sisters. The family remained
close throughout their lives, each sibling marrying and rearing families of their own. Beatrice received her masters
degree in Christian education from Wheaton College in Illinois. There she met her husband, David A. Metcalf and
after the birth of their two sons, Paul and Kenneth, headed to the mission field with Conservative Baptist foreign
missions to develop curriculum for a mission school in Argentina. Their daughter, Carol, was born in Costa Rica. The
family returned to the States and settled into teaching careers in suburban Philadelphia. Beatrice had a love for
Jesus that set the tone for all that she did. This could be seen in the family’s involvement in church, their support of
many mission groups and the many meals provided to neighbors and friends. Beatrice was preceded in death by her
husband, David and son, Paul. She is survived by her son Ken (Cindy) of Denton, TX and their three children
Lindsey (Bram) Detwiler, Meredith (David) Kolsrud and Parker. Her daughter, Carol (Peter) Mayberry, Colorado
Springs, CO and their three children Mathew (Amy), Greta (Brad) Schiffelbein and Bruce (Beth). Her son Paul’s
children, David (Caitlin) and Tiffani (Joshua) Fratrik; numerous great-grandchildren.
