Ms. Tabitha Lenora Bethea affectionately known as “Tabby” was born on September 23, 1969, in Latta, South Carolina to Barbara Jean Bethea and the late John Robert Davis. She transitioned from her earthly home to eternal rest on Wednesday, May 17, 2023.  

Tabby was raised in Queens, New York and Richmond, Virginia, attended elementary school in Queens, New York and graduated from Open High School in Richmond, Virginia.

Tabitha was proud entrepreneur of a cleaning business, gained employment as a Security Guard, and was later employed at a 911 Dispatch Center in Richmond, Virginia.

This captivating soul, a woman of God named Tabitha had a great impact on a lot of people she came in contact with. If you were blessed to have been in her presence, even for a brief moment, you experienced a life-changing occurrence in the best way possible. She was always willing to help everyone, no matter who you were, even if it may have been her last. She believed she would still be blessed. She was the person you would call, that always had a solution. She always had words of encouragement and jokes. Tabby was a woman with many titles: daughter, mother, sister, friend, grandma, and aunt. To have known her was to love her.

Tabitha was preceded in death by her father, John Robert Davis; her maternal grandmother, Anna Lee Bethea; three uncles, William Bethea, John Bethea and Cecil Bethea; and one aunt, Ethel Mae Dilligard.  

Tabitha leaves to cherish her precious memories: her mother, Barbara Jean Bethea of the home; two children, Raeven Brown and Ravaughn Bethea; a granddaughter, Ravier Brown; four sisters,, Kimberly, Tanya, Tara, and Denitra; two brothers, Orlanda “Loni” and Frankie; two aunts, Maxine Moultrie and Sandra Bethea; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives as well as life long friends.
