Beatrice L. Goforth was born on July 21, 1937 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, the youngest daughter of the late James Barnes and Ethel Gordon Barnes. She attended the Elizabeth Public School system and graduated from Metuchen High School in 1955.

She married Levander Goforth and they were blessed with two sons: Levander and Wayne Goforth.

She was employed at Bell Atlantic for 23 years, where she retired in 1991.

Beatrice was a quiet individual who enjoyed her family. In her quiet time, she enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and watching the Food Network Channel.

Baptized as a child, she was a former member of Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church in Roselle until the early 1990s.

Beatrice had a warm and beautiful spirit that was loved by everyone.

On Monday, July 8, 2019, Beatrice departed this earthly life at the age of eighty-one.

She was preceded in death by two brothers: James Barnes, Jr. and Nathaniel Barnes; and two sisters: Elaine Muldrow and Dorothy Knight.
