Hillsborough: Beatrice "Bea" Hicks Workman, 94, passed away peacefully Sunday, February 18, 2018, at Avendelle Assisted Living. She was born in Orange County, daughter of the late Walsie W.

Bea retired from Cone Textile Mills after many years of dedicated service. She was baptized at an early age and attended Church of God in West Hillsborough.
