Betty Jo Green was born February 1, 1944, in Bainbridge, Ga., the daughter of James & Adell Brock Green. She was a graduate of Attapulgus High School, Class of 1961. She retired from United States Postal Service after serving many years as the Post Mistress in Climax, Ga., and also worked at Family Bank. She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church.

Betty was a loving person always giving of her time and resources. Her nature was to nurture and that she did well. Her husband, children and grandchildren knew they came first in her life and will cherish the memories shared along the way. Betty had a green thumb as evidenced by her yard. She believed “bloom where you are planted” and helped not only her flowers, but her people, to do just that.

In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her siblings, Jimmy Green, Jr. and Janice Veloz.
