Affectionately known as ‘Gramma’, Betty was loved by everyone who knew her. She was always generous with her time, her thoughts, and her love. If you needed anything at any time, she would do all that was within her power to ease your burden or to help with your cares and concerns. As one of her friends said:
The greatest woman I know has unconditional love.
A big heart and never turns you away when you need a hug.
The greatest woman I know always has time to listen to you.
And helps to mend your broken heart.
The greatest woman I know is Betty Jones.

Betty was a woman of strong faith. She belonged to the First Freewill Baptist Church where she became part of an extended church family.
Betty enjoyed reading or listening to the Bible, gardening, knitting, spending time with her adorable dog, Holly, and, talking to or being visited by her loved ones. Betty was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
