A 1954 graduate of Snellville High, Mrs. Beeco graduated with the esteemed honors of Salutatorian.

Beeco; daughter, Elicia Williamson; parents, Harry and Margaret (Baker) Kilgore; sisters, Peggy Cleapor, Dottie Bradford, Frances Trager, Harriett Thompson; brothers, Rodger Kilgore, Sidney Kilgore and Charles Kilgore.
