Betty Joe Owens
JACKSON, SC - Betty Joe Owens, age 78, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at Trinity on Laurens.
Betty Joe was born in Ellenton, SC to the late John Allen Owens, Sr. and the late Elizabeth Berry Owens. She was a life-long area resident. Betty Joe retired after many years from AT & T Drafting (Bellsouth).

She is survived by her brother, John Allen Owens, Jr and his wife, Peggy Owens, of Augusta, GA; and a nephew James Archie Owens, Lexington, VA. As well as her long-time friends and neighbors, Ronnie and
Carolyn Rountree, who have always been there for her and family.
