Obituary for Callie Beatrice Langdon Bilbee

January 7, 1927 - April 27, 2017
White Oak, North Carolina | Age 90


Callie Beatrice Langdon Bilbee, 90, of White Oak, NC; daughter of Cornelius Edward Langdon and Gertie Olein Williams Langdon passed away quietly at Angel House Hospice Center in Whiteville, NC on Thursday, April 27, 2017 with her loved ones by her side, into the arms of her Lord.

Callie, also known as Bea, was preceded in death by her beloved husband Benjamin Watson Bilbee, 3 brothers, James, Earl and Jack Langdon and 3 sisters, Daisy Loomer, Emma Frances Faircloth and Ann Hart. Bea is survived by her 3 daughters, Geri Bowers, Sharon Cordwell and husband Ken, and Sheila Padgett and husband Michael; by her 3 sisters, Mabel Bear, Ruth Feight and Elizabeth Owen and by seven grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Bea was born in Sparrows Point, Maryland and moved with her parents to many towns across Eastern Carolina. After marrying her husband, they moved north to New Jersey. There she continued her love of flowers, surpassed only by her love of keeping her home. She and her husband were devoted to their families and spent countless summers traveling across the United States and camping along the way. Preparing for holidays was quite the occasion. Bea and Bill (nickname), together with their 3 daughters formed a singing group known as the "Singing B's". The Singing B's performed in local area churches and civic events. Bea loved people and was known for her witty sense of humor, no matter whom the guest! Her life touched many in her genuine desire to be of service.

The family will receive friends from 4-5 pm on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at Suggs Grove Baptist Church in White Oak, NC followed by a funeral service at 5 pm. Burial will follow the services in the church cemetery.
