Betty was born November 26, 1931 in Decatur County, the daughter of Clifford Lenwood Youngblood and Gladys Lorene Long Youngblood. She was a graduate of West Bainbridge High School Class of 1948. Betty was a member of Bainbridge First Baptist Church.

Betty was a sassy southern lady. Many will remember her for being well dressed and always helping others whether you knew her from the Junior Shop, Hi-Style Factory Outlet, the Hallmark Shop, or Barber Furniture. She loved the Lord and listening to gospel music, especially the Gaithers. Family gatherings were always fun and filled with Betty’s good cooking. People that knew her well knew that Betty could identify every bird in the sky and that one of her favorite activities was fishing, but not in a boat! She was a collector. Betty’s home was filled with collections of angels, antiques, furniture, what-nots, and anything red. Her greatest treasure was her family.

Survivors include her sons, Len Floyd and his wife, Sheila, of Bainbridge and William Floyd and his wife, Nancy, of Tallahassee; her grandchildren, Robert & Kim, Russell & April, Eric & Jacklyn, Becky, Sierra, and Michael; and her great-grandchildren, Bailey, Jacob, Rayleigh, and Ryder. Betty was preceded in death by her parents, her husbands, Clifford Floyd and Harry Williams, and her daughter, Sandy Floyd Perry.

The Floyd family acknowledges the great love and support of Tyisha Flemming.
