Betty Sue Worley, 88, passed away at her home in Roswell, NM, on Monday, October 30, 2017. Her joyful spirit, her infectious smile, and her love for her family are the reasons she will be missed by so many.
Betty Sue Morgan married Truett Worley on December 21, 1948, and began a lifetime journey of loving and nurturing her husband, five children, sixteen grandchildren and thirty-six great grandchildren. Betty and Truett celebrated 59 years of marriage before his death in 2008. Jeanne (Bob) Spradling, Mike (Pam) Worley, Cathy (Bobby) Reynolds, John Worley, and Cyndi (Mark) Nine survive their mom as do all her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Betty and Truett moved to Roswell early in their marriage and raised their family there, attending First Baptist Church. Betty was Director of the Girls Club in Roswell and worked for a time in real estate, but in whatever position she held, her strong faith and “can do” attitude drew people to her. As the matriarch of a large family, she continued until her final day to send out a daily email which often contained a nugget of wisdom or a Scripture, as well as pictures. As late as two weeks ago she attended Baylor Homecoming and celebrated with fifty of her family. While there, she took individual pictures with each great grandchild who was there, planning for her Christmas gifts. Betty found great joy in making handmade gifts and cooking for the enjoyment of those around her. Many will miss her gracious hospitality especially when it included her world famous cinnamon rolls. Betty Worley loved Jesus and she loved her family and friends, many of whom she will be joining in Heaven. All who knew and loved her celebrate a life well lived.
If you would like to make a contribution in memory of Betty Sue Worley please make it to her beloved church at First Baptist Church Roswell, 500 N. Pennsylvania, Roswell, NM 88201.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm, Thursday, November 2, 2017 at First Baptist Church.

    Dear Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Its never pleasant when you lose someone you love in death, it seems as though your whole world is turned upside down. Losing your loved one and not having that one in your life anymore can be very devastating. It is my hope that you find peace and comfort during this difficult time. I like to share this scripture with you, John 5:28, 29 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus] voice and come out, to a resurrection of life . What a joyful day that will be to see your dear loved one again. It will be a reality.

    Granny was one-of-a kind, and the hole left in our hearts is so big....although we know that she’s in heaven celebrating with G-pa and many others, it sure is hard this side of heaven to know that we’ll never get to read her emails, hear her wisdom or her sweet laugh, hug her neck or just hear her voice. She lived a full, incredible life, and if each of us in our family will follow in her footsteps, she and G-pa’s legacy will live on. We miss her so much already....

    Always a ray of sunlight. Mrs. Worley was always so kind to me and my parents. What a beautiful legacy of Christian devotion she has left for her family and this world. A wonderful example of a faithful servant she was for the cause a Christ. Well done Mrs. Worley. You will be missed. I know there was a Heavenly reunion with those she loved as well as my parents Tina and Bill Reynolds. Prayers for the Worley family as you walk the journey of grief and healing.
