On August 20, 2019, Betty Rose Street Smith, a loving mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, passed away at the age of 85.

Betty, born November 7, 1933, in Yazoo City, MS, was the last surviving child of Frank and Bama Street. She is preceded in death by her husband, Wilson, her parents and brothers, Frank Street, Jr., Willard Street, Charles Allen Street, and five sisters, Delores Jones, Peggy Porter, Frances Jones, Donnis Street and Nell Martello.

Born and raised from humble beginnings, her family was enriched with a strong bond of love and powerful commitment to each other. She carried forward these values throughout her life.

She was always willing to make sacrifices to love and care for all of her children, grandchildren and extended family. This strength of character, deep-rooted by her unwavering faith in God, formed her unforgettable personality: witty, sweet, independent, and a loving nature.
