Bettye VANN Knight
Jan. 21, 1931 - Sept. 4, 2018
Bettye Vann Knight went to be with the Lord on September 4, 2018 where she joined her beloved husband Billy Gene Knight. She is survived by her son, Wade Knight (Beth) of Athens, AL and her daughter, Karen Scott (Mike) of Knoxville, TN. Bettye is also survived by five grandchildren: Candace Beckner (Caleb) Knoxville, TN; Tyler Scott, Raleigh, North Carolina; Alana Coker (Matt), Huntsville, AL; CW Knight, Athens, AL; Hallie Knight (fiance՜, Graham Smith), Jackson, TN. She is also survived by one great-granddaughter, Daisy Beckner, one sister, Carolyn Vann, several nieces and nephews, and two very special friends, Nancy Cook and Beth Presnell.
Bettye was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Lester Vann, a brother, Sam Vann, and a sister, Elizabeth Higdon.
In life, Bettye served her community in Haleyville and Athens through her work and through her church. She was a thoughtful friend and neighbor, enjoyed helping those in need, and she was a prayer warrior for many. She taught Sunday School in Haleyville at First United Methodist Church, and believed in setting a christian example for all of those around her. She was a lover of birds, flowers, reading and letter writing. She will be missed by her family and friends, but she's now in Heaven, a place she dreamed of her entire life.
Visitation for Bettye will be at Spry Funeral Home in Athens from 6-8 p.m., Friday, September 7, 2018. A graveside service will be at Winston Memorial Cemetery in Haleyville, at 11 a.m., Saturday, September 8, 2018.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Limestone County.
