Betty was a faithful and active member of Olive Branch Baptist Church for over twenty years, where she served on the Usher Board, Sunday School and Kitchen Ministry. Betty was a kindhearted person with an infectious smile. In her leisure time Betty attended The Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia where she enjoyed fellowshipping with friends, crafts and going on outings. If she was not at the center putting smiles on someone’s face or spreading a kind word, she was surely cooking up something delicious. Betty was “famous” for her homemade rolls and lemon cake. People would call from all over to place orders for her delicious baked goods. She was also an avid Pittsburg Steeler fan where she enjoyed learning and watching the game. She spent countless hours putting puzzles together. It was a hobby that she truly enjoyed.

Betty was loved by many. Her passing leaves a void for all that were impacted by her life. She was surrounded by love and will truly be missed in the days and years to come.
