On September 23, 1947, God delivered one of His most unique and precious creations into the arms of Clarence Berry and Pearline Mitchell Berry. They named her Patricia Ann. She was raised in Camden and was a member of Bethel AME Church where she served as a stewardess and with the kitchen committee.
Patricia was a graduate of Lincoln High School. She married William Beavers and they shared a beautiful life together until his passing in 2013. She was a former employee of General Dynamics and ConAgra.
She enjoyed playing bingo, playing the slot machine and cooking. She would spend hours glued to the TV, watching the Lifetime channel, any and every Judge show, while always making time to watch the news. Although her physical presence is no longer here, she leaves memories that will never be forgotten.
In addition to her loving children, Jerome Beavers of Camden, AR and Fantasia Beavers of Little Rock, AR Patricia is survived by six grandchildren, Cortney (Dominique) Beavers, Jeremy (Tracy) Beavers, Gregory Porchia, Jr., Brandon Porchia and Bridgette Porchia all of Camden, AR; fourteen great-grandchildren and her siblings, Charlie (Jennifer) Berry, Clarence Ray (Marneka) Berry, Wayman (Sevata) Berry, Robert Berry, Robin (Aaron) Bridges, Connie Berry, and Zella Stockdale (Terry). She also leaves a wealth of nieces, nephews, other beloved family and acquaintances. She is preceded in death by her beloved parents, Clarence and Pearline; her husband, William Beavers; her daughter, Patrice Porchia; and her siblings, Johnny Pace, Charles Pace, Michael Berry, Linda Sue Berry and Carolyn Berry.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14: Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
