Vivian “Bea” Floyd Rogers – Wake Forest Area Obituary

The following sad announcement and obituary is made available by the good people at Bright Funeral Home in beautiful Wake Forest.

Vivian “Bea” Floyd Rogers

Sep 25, 1911 – May 6, 2015

Vivian “Bea” Floyd Rogers, 103, of Louisburg, passed away Wednesday May 6, 2015 at the Louisburg Nursing Center. She was born in Franklin County to the late Charles Victor Floyd and Minnie Ballentine Floyd.

Ms. Bea, as she was fondly known, was the owner/operator of Bea’s Place in Bunn. She was widely recognized for the wonderful food she served, especially her slaw. Always a colorful character, she could be selective about serving anyone who was not a regular customer. But by the same token, she would be the first to deliver food to a family in need or experiencing a death in the family. She loved dogs and wanted to rescue every one that needed a home.

Graveside funeral services will be held at 3 o’clock Friday afternoon May 8, 2015 at Bunn Town Cemetery with the Rev. Dr. William H. Haley officiating.

Mrs. Rogers is survived by her nephew, Charles Floyd & wife Sue of Louisburg; great-nephews, Jonathan Floyd and Adam Floyd & wife Kristin all of Louisburg; great-great-niece, Abigail Floyd; great-great-nephew, Nicholas Floyd and Adam Floyd, Jr. She was preceded in death by her husbands, Ollie Tant and Ellis Rodgers.

Because of her love for dogs, memorial contributions can be made to the Franklin County Humane Society, P.O. Box 338 Youngsville, NC 27596.

Friends may visit with the family following the service.
