Betty Jean Schmitt Beasley: Preceded in death by her mother, Virginia Levers Schmitt, Big Mama was the loving wife of James Edward Beasley. She is survived by her loving children: Eric Wolfe, his wife Anna; Darin Helms, James Bonham (Scooter), Tamara Beasley Weathers, her husband Chris Weathers (Biggie); John Beasley (the Favorite), his wife Melissa and her feline babies, Bandit and others. She is also survived by her mother-in-law Loretta Gunter, father-in-law Jerry Beasley and his wife Linda, sister-in-law Jackie Landkammer. She leaves behind 11 grandchildren with one on the way, along with many other family members.
Big Mama was a cab driver on Carolina Beach for many years. Everyone was a friend. She was warm hearted, kind and with all the lives she touched, it was impossible not to love her in return. You couldn't find a better friend if you searched the world over. We will always love her to infinity and beyond.
A memorial service will be held at Loretta's Surfside Bar at 2pm on October 13, 2013. If you wish to send flowers or cards to the family, they can be sent to: James Beasley and Family, 313 Ilex Drive, Wilmington, NC 28412.
