Bettie Jo was a very beautiful and generous person . She was a single mother raising her daughter but always made time for friends and anyone who need her help. I'm grateful for the time that I knew her when she lived in Chaparral, NM. We lost touch but I will always remember her great laugh and wonderful smile.

Betty Jo will be remembered with great fondness by many at VPBC. She was a sweet friend, and I shared many great times with her at Women’s Ministry events, Seasoned Saints events and women’s get-together times. While we will miss her, and hate losing her, we rejoice because we know she is now resting in the arms of her Savior.
I can bear the loss of my sweet friend because I know this is not the end... a glorious time together awaits us when we join her in Heaven. Rest easy, BJ, we will see you soon❤️
