Obituary Condolences

HENDERSONVILLE-Beatrice "Bimmy" Barrows, age 90, passed early on the morning of November 7, 2014. She bravely faced age as it came upon her, and faced life optimistically with kindness to all until the very last. Words cannot express the warmth of her heart and her loving attitude toward everyone who came within her sphere. She spent her last years filled with joy at Carolina Village in Hendersonville, North Carolina, a facility for all later stages of life. She moved there upon the death of her first husband, Elbert Ross Reager, Jr. Then at age 83, Bimmy Barrows rejoiced to find love again with another Carolina Village resident, renowned Cape Cod architect, Merton Barrows. This obituary is written by Bimmy's daughter who loved her mother so deeply and is inexpressibly grateful to have known and been loved by this warm and adoring woman. Bimmy Barrows opened her arms and her heart unconditionally to her daughter, to her friends, and to those who took care of her every need with such kindness when she could no longer care for herself. Per my mother's dying request, this obituary is dedicated to the life she lived – truly lived – at Carolina Village until her dying day. An online register book is available for family and friends by visiting www.thosshepherd.com. Thos. Shepherd & Son Funeral Directors is in charge of the arrangements.
