Beverly Jean Payne Agee, age 83, of Cabot Arkansas, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 31, 2021.
Beverly was born September 16, 1937 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Floyd and Lavon Payne. She attended Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, and continued her education at Ouachita Baptist University. After college, Beverly worked with her father in his appliance and service business gaining the experience she would need to later open and manage her own successful business, Royal Business Machines. Beverly and Sam were married on April 25, 1958. She also worked side by side with her husband for many years in their family business Royal Color Graphics. Beverly was lifelong learner, an avid reader and enjoyed traveling. In her younger years she enjoyed water skiing & roller skating. In recent years her favorite pastime was visiting with her Red Oak family on the back porch and having people come over to their house. You won’t find a more hospitable couple than Sam & Bev – thru the years they invested their lives in people even to the point that some of them lived with them for a period of time. She loved her Lord, being involved in Sunday School, Bible studies and doing activities with her church family.
Bev is survived by her loving husband of 63 years Sam Agee, brother Don (Sherry) Payne of Wichita Falls Tx; her children Tanya (James) Emery of Buhler KS, Jay (Michelle) Agee of Cabot AR, Scott (Elesia) Agee of Warrior Alabama, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and her nieces and nephews. Also mourning their loss is her very special Red Oak family and her church family at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. She was preceded in death by her father Floyd Payne, and her mother Lavon Lumsdon Yepez.
A celebration of Beverly’s life will be at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Cabot, Arkansas at 6pm, on Saturday June 5, 2021.
