Bea, Charley's wife, is a minor character. She is described as, "A fine-looking woman, plump and firm still, with rich brown skin and thick black hair." She is happy Buddy has visited and does what she can with what little she has to host him. She seems just as proud of Buddy as her husband is. Bea gives Buddy the potato pie to take to the hotel, a symbol of her love and admiration.
