She is also survived by nineteen great-grandchildren; sister, Beulah Lovelace, in addition to numerous nieces, nephews and other extended family.

The family would like to say a special thank you to nurse Kathy, nurse Rhonda and Mrs. Valarie, from Hospice of Rockingham County who brought comfort and care to Betty over the last several weeks.

Guestbook

This woman of God will be greatly missed. I will never forget the first time I met her and smelled the sweet perfume she was wearing. It immediately reminded me of my grandmother and when I told her it was not long after she brought me a bottle of it. I still have that bottle today and love to smell the sweetness- it remind me of my grandma and Ms. Betty. She will be greatly missed- but her rewards in heaven are plentiful. Rest In Peace my friend and I will see you again.
