Betty J. Huston, age 78, of Madison, NC passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 16, 2019 with her husband, children and family by her side.
Betty was born on October 29, 1940 in Fayetteville, NC. She was the daughter of the late Thomas Thornton and Bertha Thames Thornton. At an early age, she experienced Jesus Christ in her life, was born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit.
