Aunt Betty Jane and her brother, my dad, Bubby (Harold) always crack me up with their stories and memories. She was a wonderful woman and a big heart. Always comes over my folks house to pick up my dad or meet to do their daily walk and chatter non-stop!! I will miss this memories story.
Rest in peace my beloved Aunt!!!

I just learned of your passing this evening and it so saddened my heart. At the same time I thought it rather poetic that and your sister, my neighbor Juanita, would pass within a week of each other. When I met you and Carl 29 years ago I told my husband it was so cute that you and Juanita lived one street apart. I would watch you ladies walk through the alleyway to visit each other and watch you do your "power walks" often. I said I wanted that too for me and my older sister when we were old. I'm so glad I was able to see you at Juanita's 100th birthday bash last summer. I miss you and we've always missed Carl. I can't believe the four of you are gone now. We were blessed to have great neighbors in Marvin and Juanita and to meet you and Carl. Our youngest daughter Amber is buying your sister's house and will raise her family with her new husband. Happy to know you are joined in Heaven with your loving husband and daughter that you missed so much. God bless the family.

Aunt Betty was a lot of fun. We used to talk every morning on the telephone. I learned all about her growing up and lots of information about the rest of my aunts and uncles. We talked about grandma and grandpa Coleman. Through our conversations I know aunt Betty loved to dance to big band music. I was lucky to have seen her dance with uncle Carl at family parties, they were quite the good dancers. I’m sure they are dancing together in heaven.

Aunt Betty Jane will be missed greatly. She always made me laugh and was so sweet. I always enjoyed being around her. I will miss her, but now she is with all of her loved ones that have gone before her. Love you Aunt Betty!!!

I loved growing up in such a big, wonderful, loving family. My aunt Betty Jane was always so funny. I remember being only 17 when her and my mother moved me from Kansas to Florida with my minimal belongings to my first apartment. I had just gotten married and was 4 months pregnant. We had so much fun on the way down there. We laughed and laughed over anything and everything. The day we arrived at my tiny apartment was my birthday and they brought my stuff in and turned around and headed back that day to Kansas. I don’t know who was crying the hardest, me, mother or my aunt Betty. She will be missed by all of us. God bless and Rest In Peace aunt Betty Jane.

The time my sister betty and I did a Indian Rain Dance in her front lawn when she lived in Arkansas. People probably thought we were nuts but we didn’t care we wanted it to rain. Well we did get a few sprinkles and all we could do was laugh. We always said wonder what would have happened if we really had put our heart and souls into that dance. We always said it probably would have poured. Just one of the many memories her and I shared. And i will truly miss her.
