Betty Lou Lawrence, 71, of Beaufort, passed away on Saturday, January 30, 2021 at Carteret Health Care in Morehead City.
Betty Lou, or “Little Bit” as most knew her, was an amazing woman with a big heart who loved everyone and everyone loved her. You could often find Betty Lou on the water, clamming, eating/cooking seafood, tending to her flowerbeds, crocheting or celebrating holidays, especially Christmas. She loved her children and grandchildren and was known as the protector of her little sister, Jennifer. And you can’t talk about her love of family without mentioning “Little Man”, her beloved dog she considered one of her children.
The family will hold a graveside service at 2:00 PM on Saturday, February 6, 2021 at Vergie Mae Cemetery on Harkers Island.
Betty Lou is survived by her daughters, Amanda Hardee of Otway, Dwayna Davis of Beaufort, Katrina Johnson and her fiancé Freddie Wilson of Southern Pines; grandchildren, Janie and Paul; great grandchildren, Carson, Jaycee, and Jacoby; siblings, Eddie Rose and his wife Janie of Straits, Jennifer Taylor of Straits, Jimmy Nelson and his wife Minnetta of Harkers Island, Debra Willis and her husband Hugh of Gloucester; stepmother, Twila Nelson of Harkers Island; and of course, her beloved dog, Little Man.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Norma Nelson; father, Cranston “Doc” Rose; and brother-in-law Robert "Bobby" Taylor.
