Betty A. Crawford, 88, of Greenville, widow of the late Charles Crawford, went to be with her Lord on May 17, 2023, at home with her loving family gathered around her.
She was born Betty Alice Anthony on November 29,1934 in Pickens, SC. She was the daughter of the late Joseph Bennett and Alice Anthony. She was the last surviving sibling of thirteen children.
Betty was a founding member of Tabernacle Baptist Church and was a faithful member there for over 40 years. She currently was a member of Rock Springs Baptist Church in Easley, SC.
Betty was a praying mother and grandmother; a prayer warrior to those who knew her. She showed unconditional love for her family. She told her family that the greatest gift they could give her, was to promise to see her in heaven. Betty wrote many hymns and had them recorded. She would awake in the night and write down the words that the Lord gave her.
One of Betty’s greatest passions was her vegetable garden. Betty’s generosity knew no bounds, and her garden was a testament to her selfless nature. She always shared the fruits of her labor with her loving family and friends. Another aspect of Betty’s remarkable character was her ability to fix anything broken. She possessed a unique talent for mending objects.
Betty is survived by her children, Danny Crawford (Phyllis) of Greenville and Linda Thompson (Mike) of Greenville; six grandchildren, Jason Crawford (Mary), Jacob Crawford, Kristen Harte (Phillip), Meredith Lema (Nick), and Anna and Drew Crawford; five great grandchildren, Kaden and Khloey Crawford, Colton and Dylan Harte, and Tucker Lema; and many cherished nieces and nephews.
