Betty Quinn Goddard-Cravens Obituary

September 24, 1923 - November 1, 2014

Betty passed away peacefully, at home, on November 1, 2014 at the age of 91. She was born September 24, 1923 in Illmo, Missouri. She was the youngest, and last surviving, of seven children. We believe her childhood was filled with love and many happy times. She was also preceded in death by her husband; Ben Cravens, who died of multiple sclerosis. She diligently and lovingly cared for him for many years.

Betty is survived by her two daughters; Donna Cravens of Yuba City and Phyllis Ringstad of Reno NV. Her grandson , Randy Ringstad of Reno, NV., and her two nieces; Sandra Watson and JoAnn Daniel of Yuba City and their families.

Betty was a member of the First Baptist Church in Yuba City for many years. She fervently believed in the Bible exactly as it stood and read from it every day that she could. In Mom's case, apart from the body meant present with the Lord. Her respect and love for the Lord was unbreakable. Through God's Grace and love we know she's with him now.

Betty chose to be humble. She chose to be loving. She chose to care for others. Betty's life was a simple life, very well lived. We don't think anyone could ask for more.

Graveside services are Tuesday, November 18th at 2:00 PM at Sutter Cemetery.
