Bettie was an integral part of the community of Heber Springs. She was a beloved member of Sugarloaf Baptist Church. She served by doing the things she loved including making nutritious meals and distributing it to the people of our community that needed it most, children and the elderly. She spread the gospel to anyone willing to listen, through her kindness and words. Her legacy includes her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to whom she was always there for with presence of mind and body. Teaching them to be kind to one another with the constant reminder to remember who they are and who they belong to.
To celebrate her life and her current fellowship with Jesus we will be having visitation in the Sugarloaf Baptist Church at 1:00pm on Sunday, September 13, 2020 with funeral services following at 2:00pm. Interment will follow in Friendship Cemetery.
