Betty Jo Murphy Bryant was called to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 26, 2022. Born December 7, 1933 in Donalsonville, Georgia, Betty was one of two born to the late Mary Williams Murphy and Charlie B. Murphy.
As a young woman she attended St. John A.M.E. Church where she gave her life over to the Lord Jesus Christ. Betty met and married her late husband Elder Moses Bryant. In this union they welcomed nine children and three grandchildren. Stepchildren: (Deceased) Nazaree Bryant Grubbs and Moses Bryant Jr.
Never one to be idle, Betty was a prolific gardener. Each spring she would spend hours cultivating and seeding the ground to produce the most succulent vegetables. From her peach trees she made delicious peach cobblers. In her quiet times she enjoyed crossword puzzles, listening to gospel music, reading the Bible and spending time with her grandchildren.
