Betty June Lewis FORT WORTH--Betty June Lewis, a lifelong resident of Tarrant County, died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, July 19, 2020. FUNERAL: Private due to Covid-19 restrictions, but Betty will lie in state at Thompson's Harveson & Cole Funeral Home, 4350 River Oaks Blvd. (new location!), all day Thursday for anyone wanting to privately pay their respects and a visitation 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday. MEMORIALS: The family also requests charitable donations in lieu of floral tributes. Betty was born June 25, 1932, in Fort Worth. After graduating at age 16 from North Side High School, she enrolled in night classes at TCU and accepted a job with Jones & Conner law firm in the W T Waggoner building beginning a 70-year career in real estate law and procedures retiring at age 86 in 2018. Betty married Guy Allen Lewis on July 6, 1957, and for 56 years they were a force of nature attending every party, gala, deb ball, symphony, ballet, opera, play and art show they could. They were members of the Kimbell, Amon Carter and Modern art museums, as well as The Fort Worth Club, The Petroleum Club and Ridglea Country Club where they could be seen regularly dancing to the music of Charlie Campbell. Betty raised champion quarter horses with her father and was also a competitive ballroom dancer with her friend, Bryce Evans, but will always be remembered as one of the best closers in Fort Worth, working years for Rattikin, Alamo and McKnight Title companies. She retained a loyal following of realtors, lenders and attorneys all looking to her to make their deal work and most have a story of Betty coming to their rescue because of her ability to remain calm and find common ground. Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Guy; her parents, Gladys and Johnnie Lowe; her sister, Dorothy; her niece, Shari; and great-niece, Amanda. SURVIVORS: Her son, Gregory Allen Lewis; granddog, Beau; great-nephew, Johnathon and his fiancee, Andrea; and a host of friends and acquaintances. Many thanks to her wonderful caregivers Jade and Silvia, Dr. Janice Knebl, Liz McGuire, Travis Couey and everyone at Beyond Faith Hospice.

Not sure what to say?

Betty was a personal friend of mine and a provider of information about property all the years that she worked for the title companies. Her ability to remain calm was one of her greatest assets, and her ability to make lifelong friends was a gift to me and to many other realtors. My special thoughts are with her son, Gregory.

My husband Ray has known Betty for a long time. She was such a nice lady and so good at what she does. You knew she would stay on top of your title work and it didn't matter how crazy complicated the situation was she was going to get it taken care of and you didn't have to worry about it. We were always happy to talk to her and see her over the years. I was so impressed that she was sharp as a tack and never missed anything. She had a better memory than me. The Betty White of the title...

Betty was the best! Always meticulous in her professionalism and beauty.
She closed many of our family sales.
I knew it was “done correctly” when I handed her a contract with my years in Real Estate, the good ole days!
She was trusted and loved by everyone.

I’m so sad. I love Betty.
She taught me more about the title biz than all the others put together.
She is brilliant!
Remembered every word of every closing she ever had. It was amazing.
I’m a better person to have known her.
I will miss her so much but know she is having a big time in heaven!!!
She’s really the lucky one.
Love you Betty!!!!!

I got to know Betty when I started working for McKnight Title. She was always wearing a smile and had kind words to say to everyone she met. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends. She will be missed by all.
