Betty loved all of her nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
Betty’s first love with God and she followed him in all things in life. She was 14 years old when she was saved and continued going to church and devoting her life to God up to the Sunday before she passed. She was a support to her husband Johnnie as her preached many churches through the years. She was a loving mom and Mimi to her daughters and granddaughter. She loved spending time with her family, shopping and going to yard sales with her special friend Ibeah. Besides reading the Bible many times, her passion was doing crossword puzzles, taking long car rides to see the countryside and before retiring working with special needs children as a school bus aide. She will be heavily missed by all her family but we rejoice in knowing she’s with her Lord and savior and no longer suffering.
