Barbara Lord Sapp Beaman
Barbara Lord Sapp Beaman passed away in November at the Tricounty Nursing Home in Trenton. She was born in May 1921 to E.L. and Elizabeth Charlebois Lord in Ruston, LA.
Barbara came to Florida as in infant and lived her entire 98 years in the Gainesville and Trenton area. She is predeceased by her first husband, James H. Sapp, Sr.; her second husband, Clayton Beaman and her daughter, Audrey Sapp Wynne.
Her surviving children are James H. Sapp, Jr., Mitchell E. Sapp, Linnie Sapp Beck, Donna Sapp Wright, Germaine Sapp Wynns, Leslie Sapp and Barney Sapp; 12 grandchildren, 21 great grands and a large extended family to cherish her memory.
Barbara was a lover of books and gardening. She was always willing to share her knowledge with those who were fortunate enough to know her unique personality. She was almost unbeatable when playing Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit. Crossword puzzles were done in ink and rarely needed correcting. A thousand piece jigsaw puzzle was usually finished in a week.
Barbaras advice to anyone would be to read and help others learn to read. Also, go outside, plant a garden and smell the roses.
It is her wish that there be no viewing or funeral. There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date.
The family requests no flowers, but suggest donations be made in her memory to the Gilchrist County Educational Foundation, P.O. Box 1816, Trenton, FL 32693.
