            Bessie was affectionately known by her family as Mom, Grandma, Poppi, or GG. She loved her big family and knew everyone’s birthdays and anniversaries. She was a volunteer at the Navarre library for many years and active in civic and social clubs. She was a member of the local Red Hat society and the Bunko club and she loved to have lunch with the ladies whenever she could. She retired from the IRS in 2002 and moved to Florida shortly after the death of her husband of 45 years Haskell R Vest Sr. She loved to travel and was very bold in traveling alone to visit her family across the US. She was an avid dancer and met her wonderful dance partner Spurloc Blanc Sr in 2008 and they danced up a storm for nearly 10 years traveling around the world together until his death in 2018. Bessie made friends with everyone she met and always gave them a big smile. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, three siblings, husband, special friend, and her beloved grandson Johnathan Adams.
