Betty Jones was a person who knew no strangers. She made friends wherever she went. She was a person that felt deep compassion for others and never judged anyone. She was always there to provide help to anyone who asked, and always did what she could to make other people happy. She often put other people’s needs in front of her own. Betty was heavily involved in her church where she served on the ladies ministry and helped organize meals for those in need. She would go to homes and serve communion for those who were no longer able to get out on their own, and would always develop a special friendship. Betty loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and she was proud of all of them. She loved to travel and went on many adventures including Greece and Italy.
