She graduated from Clinch County High School 1947 and attended Massey College. She worked for a period of time as a telephone operator for Bell South and as a Private Duty Nurse at Humphrey’s Memorial Hospital in Fernandina Beach. But her greatest job was in teaching Sunday School classes, setting an example of how to treat others, how to walk with Christ and Teaching the Bible to all of her extended family and her friends. She was a long-time member of North 14th Street Baptist Church in Fernandina Beach, FL. and more recently was a member of Kingsland First Baptist Church in Kingsland, GA.
Through her life we truly experienced the Love of God, the reality of the hope of Heaven and the joy of knowing the Salvation that Jesus Christ has prepared for us.
A true celebration of life and home going services for her will be held at 3:00 pm on Friday, September 25, 2020 at First Baptist Church in Fernandina Beach with internment to be at Bosque Bello Cemetery. Her family will receive friends from 2:00 pm until the hour of service at the church.
Her family requests that memorial donation be made in her name to First Baptist Church of Fernandina Beach, Florida.
Mom, Granny, Aunt Betty – In God’s hands you rest, in our hearts you live forever.
