Betty Jean Williamson passed away in Buna on Friday, November 4, 2022 at the age of 80 years, 10 months, and 11 days. Betty was born on December 24, 1941 shortly after the start of World War II, and lived on a farm with her mother Mary and her grandparents. In a few years her mother met her stepfather Ray Bates and they moved to Orange. Betty graduated West Orange High School in 1960. Shortly after, she met her lifelong husband William Wesley Williamson of Orange. After he served four years in the military, they returned to Orange. They lived and raised their sons while living and working in the orange area. They then moved to Buna in 1980. Betty worked for the Buna School District for 22 years as a cafeteria lady and custodian. After she retired, she stayed at home and attended Central Baptist Church in Buna where she met a lot of friends. She enjoyed playing hand and foot canasta and Mexican train dominoes. As Betty’s family began to grow, her first joy was her granddaughter Victoria who quickly won her hart and was always at her side. Betty loved teaching her how to cook pies and letting her help decorate the house for the holidays. On February 8, 2016 Betty’s great grandson Christian Troy Fleetwood was born and he quickly became the apple of her eye. She loved spending time and playing with him when he got to visit and she got to babysit him. Those who knew Betty knew she loved dogs and they loved her including a white little poodle named Daisy Mae. Betty truly loved her family and friends and she will be deeply missed by all. She will be laid to rest beside the love of her life, Wesley at Antioch Cemetery in Buna.
She is preceded in death by her husband, William Wesley Williamson; father, Aaron Jones; stepfather, Willy Ray Bates; and brother, Thomas Ray Bates.
