I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. I can't exactly understand how you feel, but our Heavenly Father Jehovah does, and he will give you the strength to endure. May the wonderful memories you have of Betty bring you comfort and the words found at Isaiah 41:13 where God says he is grasping your right hand, the one saying do not be afraid I will help you during this difficult time. Please go to jw.org if you have any questions about what happens to our loved ones we lose in death.

Dear Joey and Family, My heart goes out to you all in this time of great loss. Aunt Betty was really something else! I remember visiting Savannah as a child, and I have fond memories of her from the very beginning. We corresponded quite frequently for awhile when I got older, and it was always fun to get a letter from her. She kept me in the loop about the family and about what was going on. I loved her and will miss her. I will be thinking of you all and sending love and prayers to you.

Joey & family. My condolences on the passing of Mrs. Becton. I have fond memories of her taking students of Independent Presbyterian Day School to Starland's Dairy. I know she will be sorely missed.

Since death wasn't God's originally purpose for mankind it's very painful to deal with but please read the wonderful hope that the Bible holds out for us all at Revelation 21:3,4

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

Betty Lucile Armstrong Becton, 92, has now gone to be with her Lord and Savior. She was the middle child to be born to the late Arthur L. and Alice Armstrong. She graduated from Savannah High School in 1943 and later worked for the Railroad in the old “Red Building” on East Broad (now MLK Boulevard) as a clerk. She met the love of her life, the late Joseph E. Becton, Sr. who served our country in the US Coast Guard during WW II. Betty later became a school teacher’s aide with the Board of Education and worked at the various schools for over 18 years before retiring. Joe and Betty had one son, Joseph E. Becton, Jr. She was very proud of him and later in life gave her, her most proud moments, being a grandmother to (2) grandsons, Matthew and Michael. After all of these years, she finally had bragging rights about how her grandsons……She was so proud of them. Every chance she had, she was involved in their lives.

Surviving are her sister, Rose Lee Ott of Albany, GA, two nieces, two nephews, and their families and her devoted son, Joe Jr., daughter-in-law, Yvette, and her two most precious gifts from the LORD, her grandsons who she loved so very much, Matthew and Michael.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.

The funeral service will be 10:00 a.m. Thursday, March 1, 2018 at Bull Street Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens.
