April 26, 1930 - May 8, 2016
The Lord in his mercy, wisdom, and love, looked down from Heaven and saw that his child needed to rest. He embraced her in his arms and laid her head upon his breast and carried her away in the early mist of morning to join her mom on Mother's Day, oh what a gift for her. What better blessing or gift to receive than to go be with Jesus and her mom on Mother's Day. Ms. Mary Lou "Sis" Beck was born in Laurens County on April 26, 1930 to the parentage of the late Mr. Robert Beck, Sr. and Mrs. Pearline Irwin Beck. She attended school at Roddy Church and lived most of her life in Bleckley County. She worked at Bryant Nursing Home but was mostly a House Mom to many. At an early age, she accepted Christ as her personal savior and joined MarthAnn First Missionary Baptist Church where she served on the usher board and worked the kitchen committee faithfully until her health declined. On Sunday, May 8, 2016 in the early mist of the morning, she was called to rest from the joys and tears of her earthly life at home. A celebration of her homegoing will be held on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at MarthAnn First Missionary Baptist Church with burial to follow at Thankful Baptist Church Cemetery in Roddy. She was preceded in death by all of her siblings: two sisters, Ms. Martha Lou Horne and Mrs. Dorothy Anderson; six brothers, Mr. Lee W. Beck, Mr. Robert Beck, Jr., Mr. R.D. Beck, Mr. Joe L. Beck, Mr. Mike Beck, and Mr. Bobbie Beck; three granddaughters: Linda Beck, Mary Alizabeth Beck, and Gloria Beck; and one great-granddaughter, Jazmine Boston. She leaves to cherish her memory: one daughter, Mildred (Charlie) Wilson; one sister-in-law, Ms. Essie Beck; one granddaughter, Wendy Beck; and one grandson, Danny Wilson; a special young man that she raised as her own, Codetria Farrow; seven great-grands: Jamal Beck, Jermaine Beck, Jamie Beck, Victoria Beck, Monica (Cori) Veal, Javonte Beck, and Brianna Beck; five great-great-grands: Zi'Reon Beck, Ja'Lyri Burns, Jakius Beck, Za'Cari and Za'Mari Beck; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She had become very fond of a gentleman named George "Billy" Perry that she proudly called her grandson. The family will be at the residence on Palm Street. Services were entrusted to Fisher Funeral Home of Cochran.
