Betty  White
Betty Lou Delores White, 83, of Tilton, met Jesus face to face at 3:30 p.m. Monday, September 16, 2019, at Pleasant Meadows Senior Living, Chrisman.
She was born August 24, 1936, in Danville, Ill., the daughter of Harvey and Helen Elizabeth (Cooper) Griffin.
She was united in marriage to her sweetheart, George A. White, on May 4, 1958, in Westville. After 61 years together, he will miss her dearly.
Betty also will be missed by her son, Timothy Allen (Marianne) White of Danville; her daughter, Darla Jean White of Danville; her brother, Robert Swider of Danville; her grandchildren, Katy, Brianne and Carter, all of Danville; and many extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, Eugene Swider, LeRoy Swider and Jim Swider; and her sister, Beverly Rouse.
Betty worked many places including, Woolworth, Windbreaker Jacket Factory and Howell Playground. She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and was a good and faithful servant to the Lord and shared that love with everyone. She taught beginner Sunday School class for many years.
She enjoyed watching hummingbirds, sewing, tending flowers and cooking.
Betty loved music and instilled it into her family all the way down to her grandchildren. She was even a part of the group Sunny Norman and the Drifting Playboys, which included her friend, Marvin Lee. She loved listening to Darla play piano and singing with her family and being in the church choir. Betty loved hearing people play the piano and sing even up to her last birthday.
She always had a smile and was loved by all who met her.
A celebration of Betty's life will be at noon Thursday, September 19, at Calvary Baptist Church, 1632 Georgetown Road, Tilton, with Pastor Joe Humrichous officiating. Visitation will be 10 a.m.-noon Thursday prior to her service at the church. She will be laid to rest in Greenwood Cemetery, Danville.
