Bessie is survived by one daughter Rita Murray Storie & husband Richard of Sugar Grove, N.C. She is also survived by two brothers Dallas Robinson and Paul Robinson both of Manchester and by one sister Pauline Doyle of Jonesville, MI. Bessie was blessed with three grandchildren Whitney Afterkirk Gosser & her husband Chris of Sanford, KY, Hollie Storie of Boone, N.C. and Joshua Storie of Raleigh, N.C.; and by two great grandchildren Sharon & Evelyn Gosser; She was also blessed with a step great grandson Justin Hollars of Sugar Grove, N.C.; by a special son in law Joe Afterkirk & his wife Debbie; by many nieces and nephews and by one special longtime friend, Peggy Spitzer of Myrtle Beach, S.C. plus dozens of other cherished friends from Home Health, Senior Services and C.A.P.

Bessieís wit, hospitality and tenacity were admired and will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know her well. She was an avid gardener with a green thumb, never missing a planting season in her 89 and a half years.

We feel our loss is Heavenís gain.
