Beatrice Joan Feeney
June 25, 1944 - March 17, 2023

Bea Feeney, 78, of Clayton, NC passed away on Friday March 17th 2023 with family & friends on constant rotation providing prayers, love and final farewell all of who loved her beyond measure.

Bea was born on June 25, 1944 in Delaware to Peter and Frances Capor. Bea was a Christian woman who cherished her faith, loved to travel, enjoyed adventure and most of all adored her time with family & friends. Bea was always ready to go at a moments notice, whether it was traveling the ocean on cruises, enjoying local cuisine in major cities around the world, or touring the country by Christian bus tours. She truly enjoyed vacations with her husband and son’s family; to Emerald Isle where they watched turtles hatch, kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland, toured The Biltmore, tea parties in Ocean Grove, spotting shooting stars and horses on Assateague island. Whether she was spending time with family or enjoying laughter with friends, attending church at Mount Moriah Baptist, Bea was always surrounded by those she loved!

Bea was diagnosed over 5 years ago with Pancreatic cancer and many doctors called her a miracle. She was a strong woman with an amazing outlook on life. She never skipped a beat through her battle with cancer, she was always energetic, happy and optimistic. In the past few years Bea made a bucket list, realizing how much she had already accomplished- she focused on adventures she had yet to take. With her family & friends by her side she took on thrilling experiences in her final years which included; skydiving, riding on a motorcycle, paragliding, 150mph in a nascar, released butterflies, adopted a Kohala, went to Graceland and so much more. Most of all her experiences were ways to create memories with the ones she loved. When she wasn’t jumping out of plane’s, Bea loved a good book, playing games with friends, sharing stories over home cooked meals, dressing top notch for any occasion, enjoyed a night out with close friends, hitting top scores on her bowling team, volunteering for local community events & programs and tending to her garden while feeding the hummingbirds. Bea also loved to reminisce on the past, her time spent in New Jersey where she started her family with her husband and had their son, Shawn. In her time in NJ she was a school bus driver that adored her children and built many amazing friendships along the way before moving from Avenel, NJ to Clayton, NC in 2003 where she spent the rest of her time building new friendships and being close to family.

She is survived by her husband of 52 years, John, her son Shawn and daughter-n-law Brianna who live in Colorado with her grandchildren Havyn & Ryder. Her sister and neighbor Gloria Farrell & her family shared many memories with her in North Carolina. As well as her extended family Bettylou & Roger Eckenrod and their crew, Maxine Stopfer as well as Bryan Young a neighbor turned family, all of who will miss her dearly.

The family would like to thank her local friends, family and Mount Moriah Baptist church community, who visited and supported her through this trying time. Also everyone that prayed for her through her journey with cancer, as her miracle was not only due to her outlook on life but love, support & prayers from all who knew her. She was one popular lady!

The family would also like to thank SEC Hospice House who also provided exceptional care in her final days.

Our Promise

Apples to Apples

Just like all other licensed funeral homes in North Carolina, City of Oaks Cremation, LLC is regulated by the NC Board of Funeral Service.

The same laws that apply to the big corporate funeral homes also apply to the modest independently owned firms like ours. All crematories in North Carolina, regardless of who owns them, are inspected annually by the state and must adhere to the same rules and laws.

Genuine Care

We're committed to providing families within our community unsurpassed service before, during and after the time of loss.

Our staff will provide clear communication to your family through each step as we move forward from the original phone call notifying us of a death to the time we deliver the urn back to your family. We will treat your family with the utmost respect, as we honor the wishes of your loved one.

We promise to make this process affordable and as endurable as possible.

State Wide

Unlike other funeral homes, we don't charge an additional mileage fee. Regardless of what county you live in, we can help your family with making simple, affordable funeral arrangements. From Asheville to Wilmington, we're proud to help families statewide.

Our Services

Direct Cremation


Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. We include everything you need for a simple or direct cremation. Simple, affordable and reliable. We have not changed the cost of our direct cremation service since we opened City of Oaks in 2012.

Cremation with Solidified Remains


We offer the option of choosing how you receive your loved ones remains. Selecting our Direct Cremation with Solidified Remains option is a beautiful way to transform cremated remains into 40-60 “stones” that you can hold.

Cremation with Visitation


City of Oaks Funeral Home and Cremation provides an affordable cremation option with onsite visitation. Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. Simple, affordable and reliable.

Immediate Burial


An immediate burial has the same end result as a traditional burial; however, we have eliminated the extra (sometimes unnecessary) services prior to getting to the cemetery. Not everyone wants an open casket for viewing or a limousine for the family. Despite the term immediate, we can move as fast as you need or as slow as you like. This option simply allows you to save money by eliminating some of the fancy extras at the funeral home.

Traditional Funeral


We offer the same traditional funeral services as the big corporately owned funeral homes in the area; however, we cost about half the amount. You might consider a traditional funeral service if your family is looking for an open casket visitation, a traditional church service or a funeral service in the funeral home's chapel. A traditional funeral service can be altered to fit the needs of your family.

Green Burial


This establishment is one of a select number of funeral homes who meet the criteria for providing green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmentally sustainability in the field of funeral service. Our Green options allow for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic and non-biodegradable materials/chemicals.



As an alternative to traditional cremation, City of Oaks Funeral Home also offers Aquamation. The Aquamation process, often referred to as alkaline hydrolysis, uses a solution of water and potassium hydroxide to facilitate natural decomposition.
