    Betty was a very caring person who was always there when times were good as well as difficult. She was a great friend to my mother and was present to help our family during my mother’s illness. I have always thought of her as someone who truly cared.

    Lucy Hidalgo Lomonte says:

    Betty worked with my mother, Mary Hidalgo, at Sears. Betty was very special to my mother and me. Betty and James were most helpful and supportive when we lost my brother-in-law, Frank Rinando. They were true followers of Christ. Love and prayers to all of you.

    Joan Woods says:

    My thoughts and prayers for all the family members. She was my Aunt Betty Jo. I am one of the twin daughters of her brother Richard Jess Brewster. I also remember the swing in her backyard as a child on visits with my grandparents.

    Deepest sympathy is extended to James, Craig, Sue and Betty’s other family members. It was my privilege to be a neighbor of Betty and her family many years ago. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend to my whole family. Her pleasant personality and friendly disposition will always be remembered by me. May she Rest In Peace.

    My condolences to the family. Mrs. Linscomb was my supervisor at my first job at the old Sears in downtown Beaumont. We worked in the drapery and linen department, and she taught my then 17 year self old how to properly fold towels and measure a window for drapes – skills that are still appreciated today! She was a joy to be around. Rest in peace, Mrs. Linscomb

    Hilda Bertrand says:

    Would like to express my condolences to the Lipscomb family. She was a favorite bridge partner
    We loved our little dogs so we always had a good conversation to share. Will miss her.


    Sara Roe says:

    Aunt Betty (my father was James Brewster) was one of the very best people I have ever had the pleasure to know. As children, my sister and I knew her as the fun aunt — always up for a ride on a swingset, or with an extra cookie or two. As an adult, I saw the woman who did the heavy lifting — visiting the sick, donating blood until she finally got so old they wouldn’t take it any more, and cooking an entire Thanksgiving dinner for my mother and father when Mother got home from rehab after a debilitating stroke. Not only did she cook this meal, she cooked it in Beaumont, drove it to Dallas, served it up, and drove back to Beaumont in the same day — and she was in her sixties at the time! She did everything with a twinkle in her eye that never faded.

    I can’t even comprehend the loss Uncle James, Sue and Craig feel today. My Aunt Betty was one of the people I admired most in the world, and my prayers are with all of those touched by this remarkable woman.

    Emily M Wickler says:

    I remember growing up in the neighborhood, seeing Ms Betty walking very fast paced all the time.
    I worked with her at the old Sears downtown too.
    She had the most comical sense of humor, loved to laugh and make people laugh.
    May you all have peace and comfort knowing she is resting with Jesus.

    Betty was one of my mother’s (Martha Smith) favorite friends. She was such a sweet person, as is her husband James. I have special memories of them both from St. Paul’s church. Condolences to her family and friends.

    Prayers and condolences for your family. Mom so enjoyed playing bridge with Ms. Betty and the girls, maybe they will start a game in Heaven!

    Scott Droddy says:

    “Betty Jo” was one of the most positive and fun loving people I have ever met. She was a great friend to my mother (Dorothy Droddy) and their whole group of friends. Prayers for Mr. Lipscomb and her family.

    Eileen Tindall says:

    Betty’s family – I am so sorry for your loss of this sweet wife and mother. She was a joy to all of us that knew her at the 8:00 service at Wesley. Always happy for another day. My thoughts and prayers remain with her sweet hubby driving the Cadillac walker and Sue, your wife and mother will be missed by all of us.

    Grandmother was my angel on this Earth and is now my angel in Heaven. She was the best grandmother anyone could ask for. She taught me so many things in life and made me the cook I am today. She will be greatly missed and forever loved.

    Dawn Clary says:

    She was a funny lady. I am so sorry for the families loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
