Beatrice J. (Wilson) “Bea” Heisler passed away on February 28, 2021 at her home in Pepperell. Bea was born in Boston on February 24, 1936 a daughter of the late Charles and Margaret (Sharpe) Wilson.


Bea was a member of the Merrimack Valley Baptist Church and was so very thankful for all the love and fellowship she received there. She was previously active in both the Grace Baptist Church in Pepperell, MA and the First Baptist Church in Groton, MA, teaching Sunday School and Junior Church, working with the Pioneer Girls, and singing in the choir. She loved the Lord and was happiest sharing her faith with others.


Bea graduated from the Jeremiah E. Burke High School in Dorchester and attended Gordon College in Boston for a short time before marrying Randy Heisler on June 4, 1955. She worked at three different hospitals doing admissions and transcribing medical procedures, at NEBS in Townsend and Groton for 14 years in Customer Service and Marketing, and retired from M/A-COM in Lowell in 1999. She loved to read, crochet, and was happiest spending time with her children and grandchildren.


Bea is survived by her sons, Randy Jr. of Pepperell, MA; David of Fort Myers, FL; and Brian and wife Susan of Townsend, MA. She was the proud grandmother of Aimee, Bobby, Tyler, Becca, Matt, Luke & Ella, Jessica Gesner, Josh Progen, Meagan Jackson, and Nancy Trifilo (who was like a daughter to her) and the great-grandmother of Brody and Gavin.


Bea was blessed and is survived by one sister, Beverly (Richard) Crosby of Brockton, MA and sister-in-law Carolann Wilson of Manchester, CT. She also leaves behind many cherished nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.


In addition to her parents, Bea was predeceased by her husband Randy, three sons, Ronald, Stephen and Bobby, brothers Charlie and Jim, and sister Nancy Pattersen.
