She was preceded in death by her mother, Gracie Terry and her grandson, Cory Gaither. Betty was a dedicated mother and loving grandmother, who devoted her life to raising her children and grandchildren. She was selfless; she always put the needs of her family before her own. Betty didn’t have the opportunity to complete her formal education; however, she was full of wisdom and insight. She often shared with her children and grandchildren, that she wanted them to live long, prosperous and productive lives. Her goal in life was to live for her children and assist them in accomplishing their goals. She saw their success as her success and their failures as her failures. Betty dedicated her life to Christ and became a member at New Life Church, where she was often referred to as ‘Granny’, and she quickly became the grandmother of the church.
