Funeral services for Beverlee Ann Bryant, 43, of Diboll will be held Saturday, February 2, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. in the Carroway-Claybar Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Walter Futch officiating. Interment will follow in the Garden of Memories Memorial Park.
Beverlee was born February 8, 1964 in Lufkin, Texas to Mona (McGee) and Jack Deerman, and left this present world Wednesday, January 30, 2008, to join her heavenly Father in glory.
Beverlee was a lifetime resident of Angelina County and was a 1982 graduate of Hudson High School. She was employed at Christian Words and Works and was a master gardener. Beverlee was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved her God, her church (Trinity Baptist Church), and her family. Beverlee loved to go on Mission trips, and would have traveled on many more if her health had permitted. Beverlee struggled with Lupus for 15 years and fought valiantly, but realized that "If our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens". Beverlee's earthly house has been dissolved, and she is now in the "house not made with hands" that God Himself built for her.
Beverlee is survived by her husband, Bethel Bryant of Diboll; son, Joshua Bryant of Diboll; daughter, Bethany Bryant of Diboll; son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Karen Bryant of Moscow; daughter, Michelle Bryant of Moscow; five grandchildren; mother, Mona Skinner of Lufkin; sisters, Wendy Deerman of Asheville, North Carolina and Patti Ventling of Cameron; and a number of nieces, nephews and other relatives.
Pallbearers will be Charlie Hodge, Steve McComb, Delbert Murphy, Harold Stansel, Richard Nash and Ed Berry.
The family will welcome friends and loved ones from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Friday evening at the funeral home.
