Betty “Christine” Pennington Minshew | Eastern North Carolina Now | Betty “Christine” Pennington Minshew, age 91, a resident of Bath NC, formerly of Kerr Lake, Salter Path and Wake Forest, died November 2, 2022, at Vidant Beaufort Hospital.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    Betty "Christine" Pennington Minshew, age 91, a resident of Bath NC, formerly of Kerr Lake, Salter Path and Wake Forest, died November 2, 2022, at Vidant Beaufort Hospital. She was the daughter of the late A.R. and Bettie Davis Pennington of Black Creek, NC and was married to the late Lloyd D Minshew. Christine was also preceded in death by her brother Ronald Pennington, her sister Rae Pennington Belet and son-in-law Kenneth Barrow.

    Christine and Lloyd were members of Parkview Baptist Church in Morehead City. They lived in Salter Path NC where they retired after moving from Kerr Lake. Before retiring Christine was an integral part in owning and operating their businesses for 40 years, Lloyd's Jewelers in Wake Forest and Minshew Bros. Jewelers in Durham.

    Christine and Lloyd enjoyed living near the water and it was their dream to retire at the beach. They became infatuated with growing tropical plants, especially banana trees, and gave away offshoots to anyone who wanted one, including their family who still enjoy them every summer. Some of her happiest days were when her grandchildren were young and came to stay with them at the lake on weekends and in the summer. She loved nothing more than having the whole family at the lake enjoying the water, learning to swim and fish and celebrating holidays and birthdays.

    Christine is survived by her daughters, Linda Rich and husband Bill of Raleigh and Frankie Barrow of Bath; grandchildren Christy Rich, Tiffany Rich, Heather Gentry and husband, Owen Gentry and Hollie Barrow; great-grandchildren Hunter Gentry, Raley Gentry, Bella Barrow and Lillian Barrow.

    A service will be conducted on December 3, 2022 at 1:30 pm at Gethsemane Memorial Park in Morehead.

    Paul Funeral Home & Crematory of Washington is honored to serve the Minshew family.
