JONES, Bettie ANDERSON - {Written by Bro. T.F. Jones and used at the funeral service.} Bettie Jones, daughter of Moses and Polly Anderson, was born in Hawkins Co., Tenn. April 25, 1870. She was left motherless at the age of 2, her father died when she was 8 years old and left her to meet life's difficulties alone. At this age she was taken by relatives in Lee Co., Virginia where she remained until she was married to T.F. Jones, July 14, 1887. To this union were born 6 children, four of whom survived her. She was born from above early in life and united with the Missionary Baptist church where she retained membership until her decease, April 8, 1910. She expressed a regret to leave her friends but said death had no terror for her, she needed the relief which could only come to her thru her death. She trusted in the blood of Jesus to save her. She dwelt in a frail body and was a great sufferer; for the last 5 1/4 years she battled heroically with pulmonary trouble which at last defeated her in the contest. She was always clothed with patience. For 23 years she bore her portion of the responsibilities of married life and during that strenuous period of life her husband cannot remember that she ever said one unkind word to him. She has borne an unusually heavy burden of the responsibilities of life during the past nine years while her husband was preaching Christ's gospel - just see what Jesus can make of an unworthy sinner - she has wrought well thru Christ. Death had a little sting but the grave will have no victory. I humbly and willingly submit to the dealings of God with her till the heavenly reunion.
