Bea spent her childhood in Jackson Heights, New York. She graduated from Newtown High School in Queens at the top of her class. Bea worked in the Garment District in New York City and met Larry Travitsky through friends while he was still in the army. Bea and Larry married in 1962 and went on to have four children. The family moved to the Orlando area in 1977 to follow family and make a new life. Grandparents and additional family followed thereafter. While living in Altamonte Springs, Bea was proud of her job at a pediatricians office for many years, as well as a secretary, at the JCC in Maitland.
