Betty Jo Stephens, 88, went to be with her Lord and Savior Thursday, December 27, 2018, at a local care facility in Kerrville, Texas.

Betty Jo was born May 21, 1930 in Mobeetie, Texas, the eldest daughter of Paul and Hazel Wofford. She spent her early years in the Texas panhandle towns of Quail and Wellington. She met and later married John Louis Stephens October 23, 1948 in Wellington. Later in life, they resided in Amarillo and its surrounding areas. Betty also resided in Wolfforth, Marfa, Presidio, Giddings, Jourdanton, Texas, and finally relocating to Kerrville in 2005. She had lived in thirty plus Texas towns which included 27 counties.

Betty was a loving, faith-filled generous woman totally committed to her God and her family which always included several pets. She enjoyed sewing, painting, reading, Bible study, cooking, music and had lots of craft hobbies. As an avid reader, Betty always had several large stacks of books ready for reading. She was an accomplished artist and novice-writer writing several religious songs. She worked at Levi Straus and as a chef at several establishments including a nursing home.
Betty's friendliness and kindness to all people and her devotion and love for her family and friends is a tribute to the beauty of her heart and soul. Her inspiring presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to have known her.

She is also survived and was blessed with 7 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, 4 great great grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The family would like to thank all the caregivers and staff at the Hilltop Village Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and the nurses, Chaplins and support staff with Peterson Hospice.
