She was a very caring grandma and loved enormously by the family and me. We will be looking forward to seeing her in heaven if we make heaven our home. She always cared for others and I remember many times she gave others her stuff even down to giving away her bed....all without caring about herself. She will be missed and may we all see her one day

Bobby, Jr and family, I am deeply saddened by your loss. Ms. Betty was a wonderful, godly woman from whom I learned so much. She and her husband visited Chapel Grove Baptist church often, years ago, and became as brother and sister to Pastor Russell Lee, Mrs. Lee and to me as well. Being the Secretary for my church at the time, I had the privilege of being in contact with Rev Bobby and Ms Betty often, and going through my husband's illness, they both spent hours on the phone praying for and with us. It brought joy to my heart to have seen her the last time she visited Chapel Grove with you; she looked wonderful! Please know that if there is anything at all that I can do for you, do not hesitate to reach out to me. I'm praying for you all for peace and comfort in Jesus' name. God bless each of you.

Eddie Neas was a good friend of Betty and he was so surprise his best friend has passed. Betty was someone a wonderful person to my brother and when I was living away she helped him so much and a close friend is not easy to forget. He will miss her and we pray for the family at this time. I have sent the Diabeties foundation a donation for her memory. Since Eddie can not be there because of illness himself we will be thinking of Bettys family

My sister Betty was the sweetest & kindest child my Mom had. Always smiling & stayed positive. She was a devoted wife & mother to 5 children, she loved the simple things of life, like anything purple, purses & ink pens..lol. She was the prime example of a Godly woman, loving everyone & never judging. I'll miss you Betty but we'll see each other again. Love you Sis
