Doris L. Beaty

Doris L. (Heffington) Beaty, 78, of Greenbrier, died Sunday, Oct. 11, 2009, at Conway Regional Health Systems.  

She was born April 14, 1931, in Conway, a daughter of the late James W. Heffington and Elizabeth Heffington Thomas.  

She was also preceded in death by sons, Steve H. and Robert L. Beaty; sisters, Amie Gunter, Lillian Mahan, Ruth Johnson and Ova Mae Jones; and a brother, Milburn Heffington.  She was a homemaker and was of the Baptist faith.

Her family remembers her as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister who loved spending time with her grandchildren.  

She had flower gardens everywhere that she enjoyed tending.  She was known as "Mom" to many as well as those who called her "Grandmother" though she wasn’t technically either.

Doris was a nurturer, who loved to baby those who were sick, and often provided them with her potato soup.  

She was a tenderhearted person, who took many in and gave them love; her daughter thinks of her not only as her best friend, but also as her "Perfect Little Angel."

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Herman H. Beaty; her daughter, Pamela L. (Beaty) Faulk; grandchildren, Chris Beaty, all of Greenbrier, Jennifer (Beaty) Teague and husband Craig of Vilonia and Shaun and Dylan Faulk, also of Greenbrier; great-grandchildren, Haley Reed, Kylie, Owen, Coleman and Hayden Teague; brothers and sisters, Bobbie Johnson, Judy Pinkerton, Connie McCoy, Norma Meeks, Freda Sellers, Orena Paddgett and Jerry Heffington, all of Conway; as well as a number of nephews and nieces.

Visitation will be 6-8 p.m. tonight at the funeral home.  

Funeral will be 10 a.m. Wednesday in the chapel of Roller-McNutt Funeral Home of Conway, with Bro. Robin Covington officiating.  

Burial will follow in Crestlawn Memorial Park with Shaun Faulk, Larry Earnhart, Jerry Dale Heffington, Darrell Ford, Don Sellers and Jimmy "Bo" Graham serving as pallbearers; honorary pallbearers will be Chris Beaty, Dylan Faulk, Coleman, Owen and Hayden Teague, under the direction of Roller-McNutt Funeral Home of Conway, 327-7727.
