Our beloved Bessie Talley Favors was born October 27, 1929, to the late Lula Talley and John Henry
Talley in Moreland, Georgia.

Bessie birthed seven children John Bohannon, Sanders Bohannon, Greg Favors, Stanley Favors, Ronald
Favors, Angela Favors, and Tisa Favors.

Bessie worked as a chef at Beaulieu Nursing Home for 20 years. She was a resident of Newnan, Georgia
for more than fifty years and she was a member of Mount Prospect Baptist Church. Bessie loved life and
enjoyed every moment to the fullest. Talking to people and dancing were her favorite pastimes between
being a loving grandmother to dozens of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Bessie welcomed
everyone she encountered with a warm heart and a good conversation. She was an amazing storyteller
who enjoyed traveling and spending time with loved ones. She was an incredibly strong and independent
woman who fought until the end.

She passed due to degenerative heart failure and other natural causes. Bessie departed this life on
February 11, 2022, at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. In her last days she was surrounded by loved ones.
