A graveside memorial service will be held at Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church at 5120 Burlington Road, Greensboro, NC on Monday October 25, 2021 at 2PM with Rev. Greg Bouck officiating.

Betty, the fifth child born to the late Kenney C. Wallace and Laura Hinshaw Wallace was born on January 26, 1929, in Greensboro, NC. At the age of two, Betty’s mother died during childbirth and she was then raised by her Uncle and Aunt, Raymond and Belle Ferree.

Born in Guilford County, she attended Bessemer High School and Women’s College (UNCG). Betty was a sportsman, beginning with a love of horses, a member of Piedmont Saddle Club, a ranking basketball player in high school, and an avid bowler. In her prime she was ranked as North Carolina’s #5 bowler in Duckpin and ranked also in Tenpin bowling. She worked in the Administration Offices in Greensboro for Burlington Industries, J.P. Stevens and Wysong-Miles Co. She was a member of Monticello United Church of Christ. She was an avid dog and cat lover. She provided a home for several rescued animals.

Betty is survived by her daughter, Laura Stockard Smith (Lewis), her grandchildren Todd Smith (Tara) of Lexington; Matt Smith (Amber) of Reidsville; and Mark Smith (Leigh) of Summerfield. Six great grandchildren, Carter, Landyn, Micah, Mason, Annadell and Emma. Betty loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren – known to them as Grandmother Betty!

Betty was someone I enjoyed seeing. Especially around Lou and Dubb Smith. It was always fun as she was a hoot so to speak. A really loving caring lady.

Laura I have a lot of childhood memories of you, me and your mother. Mainly spending time outside with each other and her many animals. I have missed seeing you and your mother the past many years. God bless you and your family and remember the love that surrounded her throughout her lifetime.

I will never forget Betty … every time I look up at her house I think I can still see her standing in her sunroom .I will always remember eating frozen pizza and watching the soap operas with you at night after work . You never forgot me or my family on holidays or birthdays . You loves animals and would even take on strays I even had to convince you that the possum that came up to eat cat food was not a cat !! Rest In Peace Betty and dance with the angels and make sure they can keep up with you !!
