Obituary of Betty Jo Belew Lee

Please share a memory of Betty to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Betty Jo Belew Lee of Independence, age 90, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, in the comfort of her own home. She was born in Pendleton County, KY on May 31, 1934, to the late Erma Hazel {Wilson} and Robert Elick Belew. Betty’s most important job in life was making her house a home for her husband and children. Betty enjoyed doing her word searches, watching NASCAR, and listening to older country music. She was always young at heart and even looked younger than her age. She was strong, hardworking, and very outgoing with those she met. She was a faithful and devoted wife, mom, and mamaw who will be missed beyond measure.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Ben Lee, Sr.; sisters, Hazel Mae Menefee, Doris B. Menefee, and Sarah E. Belew Stone; and her brothers, Chester Belew, Clyde Belew, Robert Belew, and Arthur Belew.

She is survived by her sons, Joseph B. Lee, Jr. and Louis Clayton (Jesse) Lee; daughters, Cynthia J. Lee and Patricia J. (Billy) Dabney; 6 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; as well as other close friends and relatives who will cherish her memory.

In honor of Betty’s wishes, a graveside service will be held at 2:00 PM on Tuesday, June 11, 2024, at Wilimington Baptist Church Cemetery in Demossville, KY, where she will be laid to rest next to her husband.
