Obituary for Beverly (Bev) Harth Wilkes

Bev Wilkes, 92, of Claremont, died peacefully in his sleep after a brave fight with cancer on Saturday, November 24, 2018. He was born February 13, 1926 in Richmond, Virginia to the late Walter and Bertha Wilkes. As a lifelong faithful member of Jehovah’s Witnesses, one of his greatest joys was sharing the good news of the kingdom hope found in the Bible. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and uncle.

Among Bev’s many hobbies, he loved making wine, had an amazing green thumb, enjoyed getting together with his family, and his love for traveling, especially to the beach. His guidance, counsel, and bible readings will be lovingly and sorrowfully missed.

In addition to his parents, Bev was preceded in death by his wife of 22 years, Jenney Wood Wilkes; as well as four siblings.

He is survived by:

5 Daughters: Beverly Renee W Houston (Ronald), Cherle W Stokes (Jim), Dee Dee W Ange (Thomas), Leslie W Lumpkin (Brent), Stephanie Lynn W Wagner (Curt)

2 Brothers: George Wilkes of Virginia, Jimmy Wilkes of Florida

10 Grandchildren, 5 Great-Grandchildren, 2 Nieces, and 3 Nephews, Twin Brothers: George Powell Wilkes of Virginia, and James Warren Wilkes of Florida

A memorial service will be held at 2 pm, Saturday, December 1 at the Conover Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses with Brother Joda Anderson officiating. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 1-1:45 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at the Conover Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1403 NC 16 Business, Newton, NC 28658.
