In loving memory, the family of Betty Ruth Allensworth, 90, honors her life and sadly announces her departure on January 8, 2018. Graveside services will be held at South Park Cemetery, Saturday, January 13, 2018, at 10:00 AM. Immediately following the service join the family in celebrating Betty’s life at the Roswell Country Club.
Born on February 22, 1927, in Mobeetie, Texas, Betty’s parents were Andrew Ernest West and Icah Dora Roberts.
Betty deeply loved her family. She took great pride in her grandchildren, and passionately taught them to work hard, be honest, and live life with integrity. She was their biggest champion.
Those left to cherish Betty’s memory are, daughter, Anita Thompson and husband John Thompson; brother, Jim West and wife Heidi West; grandchildren, Cassie Holloway and husband Bryon Holloway, Kristi Segall and husband Jake Segall, Jessica Leigh Thompson, and Connor Thompson; great-grandchildren, Paxton Holloway, Bailey Holloway, and Mila Segall.
Preceding Betty in death were her loving husband, Clyde Allensworth; daughter, Linda Bryson; parents, Andrew Ernest and Icah West; siblings, Briscoe West, Tommy West, and Ernestine Capps.
The family wishes to give special thanks to her nephews Ron and Roy Capps for the special care and love they gave to Betty.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Chaves County Extension Club Scholarship, 200 E. Chisum, Ste. 4, Roswell, NM, 88203.
All of us at the Extension Office want her family to know how much we will miss Betty. She was always friendly, smiling and a very willing helper. We are very sad to know that we will no longer enjoy her sunny personality.
Betty is well loved and will be sorely missed by many!

My deepest condolence to your family and friends during the most difficult time. There are no words that can ease the pain of losing a loved one. May you find peace and comfort in know that they are in God's memory and he assures us that we will experience the joy of seeing them live again here on this earth. (Job 14:14, 15)
