Betty Cockman Bumgarner

January 26, 1936 — May 10, 2023



Mrs. Betty Bumgarner passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 10, at her home after an extended illness.

Betty was born on January 26, 1936, in High Point to the late Fred and Alma Cockman. At the age of twelve, the family moved to the Seagrove area, where she remained until her passing.

In her younger years, Betty could be found gardening and spending time in her memory garden, which was kept for her daughter, Lisa. A humble and kind servant, she spread her love freely preparing meals and special treats for friends, family, and her church. Betty assisted her husband, Gene, in their family’s electronic business (Electronic Service Company in Asheboro, NC) for over twenty years.

One of Betty’s passions was Hospice, which resulted in many years of devoted service by Betty and Gene serving numerous families in the Randolph County area. She lived a life of devotion to her family, friends, and her faith in the Lord Jesus. Betty was a lifelong member of Seagrove Christian Church, serving in various capacities prior to her illness.

In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her husband Gene and her daughter Lisa.

She is survived by her daughter, Beverly Beck (Stan) and son in law, Strader Briles; grandchildren: Kent Beck (Margaret), Josh Beck, Allison Winters (Drew), and Strader Allen Briles; three great grandchildren: Emerson and Charlotte Beck, and Elise Winters.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 16, 2023, from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at Pugh Funeral Home, 437 Sunset Ave., Asheboro. A service to celebrate Betty’s life and legacy will be held on Wednesday, May 17, 2023 at 2:00 pm at Seagrove Christian Church in Seagrove with Rev. L. D. Pritchard officiating,

The family wishes to express their gratitude to Hospice of Randolph for their excellent care of our Mother and Nana. In addition, special thanks are extended to the many caregivers who provided special care during Betty’s extended illness.

Memorials may be sent to Hospice of Randolph, 416 Vision Drive, Asheboro, NC 27203 or Hilltop Memorial Cemetery, P.O. Box 29, Seagrove, NC 27341.
