Reflections of Life for Betty Jean Lattimore
A Time To Be Born: Betty was born on October 14, 1949, in Brent, AL to the late George and Willie Alice Stoudimire.
A Time To Share: Betty Jean moved to Kissimmee, FL, at a young age. She attended Kissimmee High School. Betty worked at Kissimmee Hospital for many years as a cook. She worked hard in life. Even at a young age, Betty would work to make sure her family didn’t go without. Betty’s hobby was fishing in her spare time on a fish creek. She loved music and would rule the dance floor on her own. Betty accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. She served the Lord whole-heartedly. She started at Saint James A.M.E. and to the end of her life was called Ms. Bethel. Bethel A.M.E. You couldn’t tell her nothing about her church. She served on the Stewardess Board, Lay Organization Chaplin, Women Missionary Society, and sang in the choir until her health failed. Betty Jean was very strong willed and only God could change her mind once she made a decision.
Betty was preceded in death by: her son, Monte Bell, Sr.; father, George Stoudimire; mother, Willie Alice Stoudimire; brothers, George, John, and Otis Stoudimire; and sisters, Johnne Mae Stoudimire, Love Wilkerson, and Sara Mae George.
