Dolly “Bea” Beatrice Teate Bray, 88, of Fayetteville passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family, on October 19, 2022.

Bea and her late husband, Huie, were known in our community as hard workers. Known to all as Granny, she never encountered a situation involving a person in need that she didn’t improve with an act of love.
