d. September 14, 2022

Lela Beatrice “Bea” Hall, 79, of Abita Springs (formerly of Seffner, Florida), passed away on September 14, 2022, at Pontchartrain Health Care Center in Mandeville, Louisiana. A graveside service will be held Wednesday, September 21, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at the Abita Cemetery, with Pastor Jerome Watts officiating. Bea was born on March 24, 1943 in Akron, Ohio to Harold and Milta (Fitzwater) Blankenship. She married the “love of her life,” Robert Trent, on April 12, 1975, and spent the next 47 years enjoying life to the fullest. Her greatest joy in life was her family, including her five children, a step-son and multiple grandchildren. In later years, she raised her “other children,” two beloved Sun Conure birds named Buddy and Sammy, who brought her many years of love and happiness. She was a proud Christian woman and loved God with all her might, and was not only a member of the choir at her local church, but also acted as the choir’s secretary. She is survived by her best friend aka “Pop” of Seffner, Florida; one son, Robert Magrell (Jackie) of Cincinnati Ohio, four daughters, Tammy Magrell of Mendota Illinois, Robin Magrell Steiner (Bruce) of Doylestown, Ohio, Lisa Francis Eisenberg (David) of Mendota, Illinois, Shawna Clelland (Bill) of Abita Springs, Louisiana, a step-son, Robert Trent (Tami) of Lakeland, Florida; two sisters, Terrie Blankenship Wilhite of Evansville, Indiana, Penny Blankenship Miller (Tom) of Evansville, Indiana, fourteen grandchildren, one great grandchild and multiple nieces and
nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, Larry Blankenship, and one sister, Lana Blankenship Hughes.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Graveside Service on Wednesday September 21, 2022 in the Abita Cemetery at 10:00 a.m.
