Bettie, most widely known as MeMaw, was the embodiment of unconditional love. She would do anything for her family and friends, and in return, she was loved by everyone that met her. She raised her 3 children, helped to raise her 5 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, and countless others. She had a beautiful soul and enriched so very many people’s lives. She made a lasting, positive impact on so many people. We were blessed to be able to call her Mom, MeMaw, and friend.

A Memorial Service for Bettie will be scheduled at a later date.
