BETTY MAY BELL, daughter of the late Willie Chambers and Janie Hubbard Chambers Perkins was born November 8, 1936. She departed this life for a better place promised by our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ on January 5, 2009.
Betty received her education in the schools of Halifax County, Halifax, VA. She also attended Baltimore County College and received an Associate of Art Degree in Food Service.
Betty was baptized at an early age of life in the creek of Halifax County, Hickory Grove Baptist Church, Halifax, VA. She later joined Whitestone Baptist Church in Baltimore, MD and later became a member of Union Baptist Church in Crewe, VA where she served as a faithful member of the usher board.

Betty met Theodore R. Bell in 1976 and were united in Holy Matrimony on June 28, 1986.
Betty made numerous friends and always had a way of lighting up a room with her beautiful smile and wonderful personality. She loved her family. What a blessing in Jesus we found. He allowed us to have Betty for over seventy-two years. The Lord called her home to rest forever more.
