    Wer im Gedächtnis seiner Lieben lebt,
    der ist nicht tot, der ist nur fern;
    tot ist nur, wer vergessen wird.

    Wir werden Beate nie vergessen!

    …”Blessing”…and a blessing she was. We enjoyed many delicious meals at Cafe Vienna and Beata was the perfect hostess,a beautiful, caring woman.
    May she, who has passed through the gates of death, rejoice for all eternity with her beloved Tony.

  • Rod & Krista says:

    Krista & I went to the restaurant anout 6 months ago and I hadn’t seen your mom for years. After we were seated and had our drinks she stopped everything and pulled up a chair to and we talked til our food arrived. She bragged about her sons, daughter in law, and of course her grand children. I think she could’ve talked for hours about her grand children. She was very proud of all of you. We also talked about Tony and soccer because of how much he taught me and all of time he spent with me when I was younger. We are so sorry for your loss but I know your mom missed your dad deeply and now they are dancing every night together again. Love you all, Rod and Krista

  • Matt and Laura Bryant says:

    Beate was the true embodiment of gracious hospitality. We will never forget our wonderful dinners at the bar, enjoying the company of both Beate and Tony as much as the delicious food. Her presence was a gift to all of us and she will be missed.

  • Carter Family says:

    Please accept our deepest condolences for the loss of Beate. We pray that our loving Heavenly Father (Psalm 83:18) grants you peace during this difficult time.

  • Norman C. Seibert says:

    There was only one Ms. Be a and never a finer lady anywhere.

  • Carolyn Schwalm says:

    As I sit here and reflect on all the memories we shared, I always remember with nothing but a sense of family and love.

    Every time I walked into Cafe Vienna, I wasn’t walking into a restaurant I was “coming home.” I wasn’t sitting at the bar, but a seat at the dinner table.

    I was always greeted with a big smile, a hug and a kiss. We shared laughter, tears and great conversations. Tony would come in and bring jokes then more great conversation, whether it was politics, sports or current events. Beate always took good care of me, like a mother.

    We shared so many good times, and I feel like I’ve lost the only family I have, here in Florida. Joe and Denise felt like a brother and sister to me. I remember trying Steve’s new creations as he’d bring them out ask for feedback. Of course everything always tasted wonderfully.

    I will always cherish my family and friends from Cafe Vienna and it was the hearts of beautiful people who made Cafe Vienna the place it truly was….an extended family that always had dinner ready and a living family to share friendships with.

    I was blessed to have you be my home away from home and recharge my spirit when I needed to be around family!
