She now will spend eternity with her forever love, her husband James E. “Buddy” Skinner Sr., and a host of loved ones that have met her in heaven. Her fondest desire would be for her remaining family and friends to join her in a happy reunion one day.

She was born in IsLandton, SC on October 20, 1921 to Henry Sullivan and Martha Jane Bennett Sullivan and relocated to Augusta as a small child. She grew up during the depression and spent much of her young life working to help to provide for her family. She married James E. Skinner Sr., on May 19, 1939. She took great pride in being a homemaker.

She is survived by her children, Martha Jean Waters (Jerry Hooks), James Edward Skinner Jr., (Elizabeth), Henry Donald Skinner (Darlene) and Angela S. Chavous (Mark). Her grandchldren, Dwayne Hooks, Michael Hooks, Gidget Rice, Glen Skinner, Donald Skinner, Sherry Allen, Tony Chavous and Jimmy Chavous. She has 16 great-grandchldren and 2 great great-grandchildren.

She devoted her life to caring for her family. She had a wonderful ability to make others feel welcome in her home and spent her life caring for others. She was a woman of strong faith and believed in the power and strength of Jesus Christ. She knew of His love and peace that has awaited her in her new home. She attended Flowing Wells Worship Center for many years and was beloved “Aunt Bea” of all.

Our family offers special love and thanks to her caregivers “her girls” Amanda McBride, Missy New and Jobe Sullivan. Regency Hospice provided excellent services through the kindness of Leila Sykes and Eleanor Jones. We will be eternally grateful.

Until we meet again……weep not dear one for me for I am waiting in glory for thee.
