A funeral service for Bea will be at 1 PM on Saturday, August 15, 2020 at First Southern Baptist Church, 215 E. Ettels Ln, Clarksville, IN, with burial to follow at Walnut Ridge Cemetery. Visitation will be on Saturday from 9 AM – 1 PM at the First Southern Baptist.
Bea was born on June 11, 1943 to the late Johnie Lee and Rosa Lee Walls. She grew up in North Carolina, and went on to meet her husband, William C. Sanderfer. Following graduation, Bea and William travelled the world as William served his country in the US Navy. From Malta to Germany and many in between, the two of them saw more in their younger years than most see in a lifetime.
Once settled in Jeffersonville, Bea went on to become a devoted member to First Southern Baptist Church in Clarksville. Both in and out of the church, Bea was a kind spirit to anyone she met. She truly had a heart of gold, and all that knew her, knew this.
Along with her parents, Bea is preceded in death by her beloved husband, William C. Sanderfer; step-mother, Agnes Walls; daughter, Brenda Gaunce; grandson, Christopher Gaunce; and siblings, Thomas Best and Carolyn Rose.
Left to cherish her memory is her son, William H. Sanderfer; grandchildren, Rebecca Dillard (Nick) and Megan Stewart; great grandson, Dayton; siblings, Larry Wall (Jill), Bobby Walls (Lois), and Virginia Springs (Joe); brother-in-law, Edward Rose; and a host of extended family and friends.
