  2. Remember Bedie as Sunday school teacher at Fairview church. A sweet Christian lady. Good memories of her. My condolences to the family.

  3. I am so sorry that I can’t be there this week to honor the life of my wonderful aunt. I loved her so much. My daughter, Ashley and wife Anna also send their condolences. Bedie is now holding hands with James and all of her family that went to heaven before her. Hugs and kisses to Sheryl and family. Love

  4. I always visited Bedie and James and enjoyed every visit immensely. Her love for farming, gardening was admirable and she was a fantastic cook.
    I was so jealous of all of Sheryl’s beautiful clothes growing up as Bedie was a seamstress as well.
    As i look back on her and moms lives as early widows I cherish their strength and dedication to their late husbands.
    Bedie never ever stopped missing Uncle James as he was a genuine hard working farmer and loved to work the land with her. May her girls know she was so grateful for their care and proud of all her grandchildren.
    She will Rest In Peace knowing they will carry on her grace and dignity. 💙💙💙💙

  5. Sheryl and Family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Bedie was a wonderful lady and always had a smile on her face. I remember lots of fun times at your house and lots of good food. My Mother thought so much of her too. You have my heartfelt condolences. May God bless you all.

  6. So sorry to hear this about Bedie. She was a wonderful individual and an Aunt to me. Remembering all our good Sunday’s at Grandma Gentry’s with homemade biscuits & Country Ham with a pot of Coffee. Those Gentry’s loved their coffee. I cherish those memories. She loved all her Grands & Great Grands. My prayers are with Sheryl and all the Family. 🙏🙏

  7. Bedie was not only my neighbor, but a very special friend. I always enjoyed our time together and listening to her stories of her youth, her granddaughters and of course, her dear James. She would send me home with something from their garden, being the sweet Christian lady she was. She will always hold a fond place in my heart. My prayers go out to her girls, she loved so dearly, and to anyone that knew her, because to know her, was to love her.

  8. Bride was not only my neighbor, but a special friend. I always enjoyed our time together, listening to stories from her youth, her little granddaughters and of course her dear James. She had a quite but determined spirit to carry on after James passed. I will always have a fond place in my heart for her. My prayers go out to her girls and anyone who knew her, for to know her was to love and respect her.

  9. Bedie was always a great encouragement to me during our years at church together. She has been missed terribly! I’m blessed to have known her! Much love to Amy, Brooke and Mika

  10. Bedie was faithful to attend church at Fairview until she wasn’t healthy enough to attend. I can hear her voice and can remember her testimony of when her and James decided to go to church during revival. She said they went just to have somewhere to go. But God had bigger plans and they both were saved. I think James was saved first and then Bedie. I can hear her testify and see her seated on “her” church seat. She has stepped inside the gate❤️ Prayers for the family.

  11. Bedie was a blessing to Fairview church. I know she sent up prayers for me when I was lost as a child. She was a good friend to my grandmother and to my family. She loved the Lord and her family very much! I know she will be missed.
