Barbara Faye Bentley

October 10, 1944 - October 8, 2016

Barbara Faye Bentley, 71, of Virginia Beach, was reunited in Heaven with her beloved husband Enoch A. Bentley on October 8, 2016. Born on October 10, 1944 in Portsmouth, Virginia to the late Eleanor Bessie Evans.

Barbara spent her life as a family woman. She was a great mom and an outstanding best friend. She truly embodied the vocation of homemaker with the care and concern she expressed with her loving actions. Barbara’s innate sense of reliability caused her to be the rock that many of her family and friends counted on. She will be dearly missed. In addition to her mother, she was preceded in death by her brother, Charles Draper.

Left to cherish Barbara’s memory are her wonderful children, daughter, Wendy Bentley and son, Enoch Bentley III and daughter-in-law Shawnda, cousin who was more like a sister, Vivian Edwards, her lifelong childhood friend Skipper Scott, caretaker Paula Lovett and brother Kenneth Raper.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 29th, in Altmeyer Funeral Home’s Southside Chapel, 5792 Greenwich Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23462 at 4:30 PM.
