Betty was predeceased by her loving husband of 63 years, John W. Cleere; son, Kent Spivey; her parents, Eva Jones Kent and John A. Kent; and her brother, J.W. Kent.

Betty loved nothing more than to be with her family. She is survived by her daughter, Sarita Coleman (Ron) of Wichita, Kan. and their two sons, Kris Coleman(Carmen) of Wichita Kan., and Kent Coleman (Rachel) of Concord, N.C. and their families; her daughter, Evalou Eeds (Mike) of Corsicana and their children Chad Eeds and Erika Eeds of Dallas, as well as five great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren.
