The family will receive friends at Temple Baptist Church, located at 3070 Harrison Pike, Cleveland, TN  37311, today, June 2, 2020, from 5 until 8 p.m. 

On Wednesday, a Celebration of Betty's Life will be held at Temple Baptist Church at 11 a.m., with the Rev. Paul Fox officiating. The body will lie in repose for one hour prior to the service.
