About the Author
Ellen Beatrice Franke Richter grew up on a ranch near Uvalde, TX during the Great Depression. She is a resident of San Antonio, TX, where she practiced nursing until 1961. Following an Associate's degree from Texas Lutheran Junior College (Seguin, TX), she received her registered nurse training at John Sealy School of Nursing (Galveston, TX) in 1944. She served in the Army Nurse Corps for fourteen months, received a BS degree in Nursing Education from Incarnate Word College (San Antonio) and a Master's degree in Nursing Education and Hospital Administration from Catholic University (Washington D. C.), after which she was Director of Nursing Service at Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio. In 1961, Bea changed her profession to public school teaching for a more convenient schedule as she raised her two boys. Her husband, Troy, died in 1969. She retired from teaching in 1982. Bea enjoys writing and has published four books of poetry: Lamentations of a Small Investor, Reflections of a Small Investor, Barney, and The Gathering Place. She collaborated on some genealogy works with her sister, Gertrude Franke, and has published her own, An Ever Widening Circle. She has also written Group Nursing and In Her Steps, related to her nursing career.
