Bonnie Jean (Eplee) Voris

July 13, 1931 ~ January 10, 2018 (age 86)

The Piano Brothers

Bonnie “B.J.” Eplee Voris, age 86, of Marion, passed away peacefully at Autumn Care of Marion on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 following a period of declining health.  She was a native of McDowell County, born on July 13, 1931 to the late Kelly Eplee and Madeline Price Eplee.  Her primary occupation was as a hair stylist but she also worked at the Hook and Anchor Restaurant as a hostess and helped in the family business, Plywood Sales, a building supply company.  A member of Bethel Baptist Church, she remained very active there until her health began to worsen.  She expressed her creative talents in various crafts but also enjoyed gardening, doing crossword puzzles (in ink), and was an avid reader.  Her favorite way to spend time, however, was the precious moments she enjoyed with her beloved family.

Surviving are two children, Jimmy Voris and wife Fawn of Brevard and Alexis Kelly Voris of Gastonia; her dear sister, Peggy Eplee Smith and husband Jennings of Glenwood; her brother, Herbert Eplee and wife Shirley of Charlotte and Marion; a sister-in-law, Mary Eplee of Whiteville; and five grandchildren, Cameron “C.J.” Voris, Jared Voris, Jacob Voris, Jacey Voris, and Joshua Voris, along with many beloved family members.

A service of remembrance and celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. at Bethel Baptist Church with Rev. Jimmy Upton officiating.  The family will receive friends from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon, prior to the service at the church.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  Westmoreland Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.  An online register is available at www.westmorelandfuneralhome.com.
