July 11, 1925 - November 8, 2021

Betty Jane Barrow Williams lived to be 96 years old, and until the end she was inspiring in her determination to remain mentally engaged and to be the loving matriarch of her family.  Her children and grandchildren each had a chance to be with her near the end, as she was with all of us at our beginnings.  Nothing could be more loving and profound than getting to hug and kiss our mom and exchange with her the words that are so important to say while we can.  We are eternally grateful for that opportunity.     Betty was born on July 11, 1925, in Beaumont, Texas at Hotel Dieu.  She graduated from Beaumont High School in 1942 into a world torn by WWII, so Betty immediately went to work to support herself, her mother, and siblings.  During this time, she worked for three butcher shops, and those skills came in handy later on in life […]
