Betty Jean (Beti) Hunter, 91, fell into the arms of Jesus on September 9, 2020 where she will forever be with Him. She was reunited with Lester, her beloved husband of over 75 years. She is preceded in death by Lester and her parents, Earnest Arvil & Mary Ann Johnson. Betty met her handsome sailor in San Francisco in 1944. They were married 8/14/1945, and attended Patten Bible College together. They traveled by air and bus, singing and ministering Gods Word. They moved back to Oklahoma City in 1948 and their daughter was born soon after. Beti was a true Proverbs 31 lady! A wonderful wife, mother, Mimi, GiMi, Aunt and friend! Her worth was far above jewels! She possessed great charity, compassion, wisdom & discernment. She was creative in so many ways: ceramics, statues, jewelry and oil painting. She painted (as Beti) and sold over 1500 oil paintings, including 308 Arcadia round barn paintings. She loved traveling and kept journals of their many trips. Her accounts read of trips all over the United States, Mexico and Hawaii, but it looks like Taos NM was most visited and favorite place. She loved mountains, water and gardens. A list was found of 83 automobiles and 8 RV’s they owned. Lester loved cars! Betty is survived by her daughter, Linea Dudley (Bob), Granddaughter, Brittanie Ebrite (Steve), Greats, Sabrina & Grace Ebrite. Also, greatly loved brother-in-law Bill Hunter (Linda), nieces Leslie Kerns (Brent), Lori McGill (Randy), Teresa Deguerce (Francois) and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins and loved ones. In 1973, she was blessed with additional Grands to love and pray for, Matthew (Tina), Laura (Danny) and David, who later gave her Greats Emily (Tommy), Kohl, Andrew (Taylor), Kerrigan (Dave), Michael (Kylie), Garrett, Kamran, Ruth and soon to be Great-great Calihan. She will be missed here on earth by her family and friends. Her greatest desire is for all of us to join her in Heaven for Eternity! Special thanks: To Ann and Charles Phillips for their love (and wonderful meals). To Andrew Ousley, of Hahn-Cook/Street & Draper (our grandson) for his care in perfect arrangements. To Geoff and Patricia, Carolyn, Russ and Donna, Chuck and Nancy and all members of our wonderful Faith Builders Circle. To Pastor Ron and Pastor Darren at Spring Creek Assembly of God Church for lunch, their beautiful church and service. To Pastor Josh and Pastor Matt at Faith Church for dinners and service, To Bill Hedrick and Gayla Campbell and Brittanie for beautiful music! Thank you all for your love and prayers!

Linea Dudley

September 17, 2020

Linea asked me (Wylodene) if I could share a funny story or two about Betty. I couldn't feel more honored to talk about my best friend on earth and in heaven. I should say Betty and I were more like sisters. If one of us had an idea the other was in, no questions asked. We were the Lucy and Ethel of Faith Tabernacle. So much so that we even did skits at church events from the assembly line at the candy company to stomping the grapes. Imagine Betty so dignified stomping grapes.
We travelled together had hobbies together and laughed til we cried.
One time we had gone to Lawton to Do Do Park with the girls, Linea, Becky, and Robyn and we were on our way back to my grandmothers house in Apache after dark and got lost. Well, maybe not lost but we were definitely driving in circles.
Instead of seeing a sign for Apache we kept seeing a sign 1 mile to Lawton. Betty and I were laughing hysterically and Robyn was crying hysterically "I'm never gonna see my daddy again", Linea was worried, Becky was eating a piece of roast and a potato she had in her pocket.
After the third time passing the 1 mile to Lawton sign we stopped at a gas station to ask for directions. The attendant had seen us driving in circles and told us he gets off in a 1/2 hour and he will show us the way.
What would have been a very stressful chain of events with anyone else was just another day of laughter and shenanigans for the two of us.
One Sunday I was standing looking for a seat wearing a new blue dress. In comes my friend with the exact dress on!! We had bought the same dress at the same place on the same day. Two bodies one mind.
Betty has all the attributes of wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. There is no one better!! Our loss is Heaven's gain and we will see you soon sweet friend. We love you. Wylodene
