Betty Jane Lemons Pelfrey passed away on Friday, May 29, 2020 in Amarillo, Texas. Memorial services will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, July 11, 2020 at the First United Methodist Church of Canyon with Rev. Rick Enns, pastor, and Dr. Jim Smith, Sr. Pastor Emeritus, Saint Stephen United Methodist Church, officiating. Arrangements are by Brooks Funeral Directors.
Betty brought love and joy into life with her creativity, intelligence, optimism, and spontaneous sense of humor. Music was important in her life, and she played piano and organ for numerous churches. Her strong faith guided her life.
