Doris Fulcher Bedsworth, 96, of Morehead City, passed away Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019, at her home.
Her service is at 2 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church in Morehead City, officiated by Dr. Nate Leonard and the Rev. Darrell Williams. Interment will follow at Bayview Cemetery.
Doris was a faithful and longtime member of First Baptist Church. In her early years, she worked at the Ottis Fish House, but her primary role was that of a selfless mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who was known for her love and compassion. She not only nurtured and cared for her children, but also enjoyed pouring into the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her kitchen was a special place. She loved to cook big family meals, but above all, she loved having everyone together.
She is survived by her son, George Bedsworth Jr. of Morehead City; brother, Edward Fulcher and wife Bonnie of Morehead City; sister-in-law, Audrey Fulcher of Morehead City; son-in-law, Vernon Thompson of Atlantic Beach; grandchildren, Craig Thompson and wife Francy, Christi Piner and husband Eddie, Christian Bedsworth and wife Emily and Allison Long and husband Jonathan; great-grandchildren, Jordan Hart and husband Josh, Payton Thompson, Noah Thompson, Logan Piner, Jacob Piner, Gage Long, Kipton Long and Fisher Bedsworth; a nephew, Danny Oglesby; and several great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, George Bedsworth Sr.; parents, Joseph and Carrie Fulcher; daughter, Sarita Thompson; sister, Leura Guthrie; and brothers, Tommie Fulcher and McNeil Fulcher.
The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church.
