Helen Bevis, 89, went home to be with the Lord on August 14th, 2020. Born and raised in Macon County, North Carolina, she was the daughter of the late John and Alice Nelson. Helen lived the majority of her adult life in Salem County, New Jersey where she raised her five children.
She is predeceased by her husband of 56 years Edward S. Bevis (2005), her brothers Jesse, Fred, Bill and Leroy, her sisters Mildred and Edith, her daughter in law Georgiann, and her grandson Timothy.
She is survived by her children John (Bernadine), Edward (Brenda), Robert (Bobbi), Anne Vasta (Joseph) and Leroy; her grandchildren Michael (Janie), Brian (Maureen), Kevin (Natalie), Justin, Josh, Avah, Casey Slusher (Stevan) and Ashley Whitzell; her great grandchildren Morgan, Cheyenne, Anthony, Aubree, Zachary, Colin, Connor, Noah, Julien, Elliott and Tyler; 6 step great grandchildren and 3 step great great grandchildren.
Helen will always be remembered being by her husband Edward’s side every day. She could be seen riding in the middle seat with him wherever they went. She enjoyed playing Pinochle with family and friends. She was great at drawing. She wore silk scarves and kept her beautiful black hair long even as she grew older. Helen was a green thumb and you could always find a variety of tiny plants on her kitchen window. She enjoyed visiting Longwood Gardens on Sundays with her family. Helen had a huge rock collection. Family and friends who went on vacation or road trips would ask her what they could bring back for her and she always replied a rock that you find when you get there. She had rocks from as far as Italy and Australia. She will be deeply missed.
Remembrance services are currently on hold due to the pandemic.
