Bernetha Payne
Oct. 21, 1912-April 27, 2012
DONALDSON — Bernetha Ellen Beagles Payne, 99, of Donaldson, passed away at 8 a.m., Friday, April 27, 2012, at Catherine Kasper Life Care Center.
Bernetha was born, the third of six children, to Daniel and Cora (Burton) Beagles, Oct. 21, 1912, in Bourbon. Feb. 12, 1938, Bernetha became the bride of James Payne. She had unconditional love for her children, grandchildren, and especially for her husband. Bernetha was humble, and could always be counted on to be there to help, in tough times, with her family. When her husband died tragically, at 48 years of age, she held her head up and went on. She relied on her strong faith, her whole life. Jim and Bernetha made a great couple. Jim was the spark and leader and Bernetha was happy to follow and listen. Jim never met a stranger. Bernetha loved to play cards and had done so once a week, at the nursing home, with her euchre group. She was a loyal member of the First United Methodist Church, Plymouth, and was also an Eastern Star Chapter 26 member.
Bernetha is survived by her daughters, Linda (Ed) Langfeldt of Plymouth and Pam (Craig) Laffoon of Arizona. Also surviving are Bernetha’s six grandchildren, Lisa Ellen Langfeldt, James (Lisa) Langfeldt, Matt (Margaret) Langfeldt, Mike (Kris) Treesh, Michelle Foster, and Greg (Brooke) Bilingsley; 15 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and her sister-in-law, Kay Beagles of Tennessee. Bernetha was preceded in death by her siblings, Cecile Bryan, Helen Koontz, Dr. Raymond Beagles, Betty Heiser, and Daniel Beagles.
