“Sis. Betty was a long time member of the Church of God of Prophecy. She worked tirelessly for the Lord in any way she could including being a song leader, Sunday School teacher, missionary leader and Children’s Church teacher. Her church was part of her family, and she took great pride in being a child of God. This was most important in her life and now, in death, her dream has come true to be with Jesus.”
