Betty Jean Black

Betty Jean Black was born on October 5, 1951 in Modesto, California to William and Lena Smith. Betty was the 5 th of 10 children.

Her family moved to Tulsa when Betty was just a few months old. She attended Lowell High School in Tulsa. She became a mother, caring for her nine children through their growing years. She would take them fishing and camping. Sometimes she would lock the door on them so they would stay outside and play. They enjoyed watching movies together as a family. Betty taught all her children to cook. One on their favorite meals was beans, taters and cornbread. When she could find the time, Betty loved going to the casino and playing the wild cherry games and quarter slots. She also taught her children respect and love for themselves and each other, which is a tribute to her as they gather here together to celebrate the wonderful mother she was.

Betty is survived by her children: Tammy Peevyhouse, Anthony Peevyhouse, Bobby Welch, Cody Black, Michael Branham, Shelly Welch, Andrew Branham, Daniel Smith and Penny Uzzel; grandchildren: Cassandra, Sarena, Tracey, Christopher, Lawerence, Jerry, Jordan, Chance, Cody, Sean, Justin, Joey, Sierra, Zachary, Dayton, Kory, Justyne; great grandchild: Dezzy

My heart goes out to the family during this time of great sorrow. It is my prayer that God will give you peace in your quiet moments and comfort to replace your grief. May your precious memories of Betty bring a smile to your face and a calm to your heart. May God's promise, that one day you will see your beloved Betty again, give you hope and bring you peace. John 5:28,29 guarantees, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will heart his voice (the voice of Jesus) and Come Out..."
