By Editor | Posted in: Alfieri Funeral Home

Rev. Beatrice J. (Yutzy) Lamonte, age 103, of North Versailles Twp., made her journey to heaven on August 17th just two months shy of her 104th birthday. She was born on October 29, 1916 in Bakersville, PA, one of twelve children to Harry and Jessie (Shultz) Yutzy.

As a young woman, she moved to New York City where she met and married her husband of 55 years, the late Marc Anthony “Tony” Lamonte. At 23, she was diagnosed with tuberculosis and was given no hope to live. During a 9-month stay in a sanatorium, she decided to follow Jesus Christ and answer the call to become a preacher, a call she first felt at 7 years of age. She made a miraculous recovery and never looked back.

Upon returning to the area, Pastor Bea founded the non-denominational church, Temple of Faith, in 1955. Prior to its start, she and seven young people gathered on a hillside to pray before moving their meetings to her home and then to a building on 5th Avenue in McKeesport. She stepped into the pulpit at a time when a woman’s calling was typically limited to teaching Sunday school or playing the piano.
