Berlyn "Bea" Farmer
A Prayer Warrior of the Lord
Berlyn “Bea” Farmer, age 84, of Canton, NC went to be with Jesus on Sunday, December 29, 2019. A true and devoted prayer warrior of the Lord, she brought many to know His love and care. She passed on the last Sunday of the year so we know the Angel's welcomed her home, dressed in heaven’s finest.
She was born on Wednesday, November 20, 1935 and was the daughter of the late Edward E. Rogers and the late Vergie Pressley Rogers. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandson, Drew; two brothers, Dois Rogers and Hubert Rogers; and her former husband and father of her children, James H. Farmer.
"Bea" graduated from Bethel High School in 1954 and devoted her life to taking care of others in one form or another. Retiring at age 83 from Lifespan, she was a caregiver to all. She also worked in the Bethel School cafeteria and also at Dayco International.
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Berlyn is survived by her children, Sheila Wood, Tim Farmer, Mark Farmer, and Sherrie Hall and her husband Charlie; a granddaughter, Brittany Wood; a grandson, Kenneth Farmer and his mother, Brenda; and a brother, Wade Rogers and his wife Elvalee.
