Hendrika A. Beaman passed away peacefully on October 17, 2019 so that she could return to her husband Stephen, grand-daughter Catrina and many others in her life that have gone before her. The former Hendrika A. DeBie was the daughter of Maria and Dirk DeBie and was born on November 15, 1942 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. She met the love of her life Stephen J. Beaman during his overseas tour in the U.S. Air Force. The two eventually settled down in Towson, MD. where they raised five children, Mary, Kenneth, Stephanie, Catrina and Michael. She spent years working in child care which was a natural fitting occupation for her. Having a retirement dream to settle on the Eastern Shore. She and Stephen successfully made it happen after countless years of hard work and dedication to others. Being on the Shore she was able to unlimitedly indulge (in season) with her favorite pastime of crabbing for many years. She truly loved being in her church on the Island and the company of her friends on the Shore. Throughout her life she had a knack for kids and was a professional spoiler to all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved them all dearly and truly showed it with her devoted time, energy and sugary food that would never run out of stock at her home. She leaves charging a tax that will cost many tears and endless remembrances of great memories.
