A celebration of this amazing woman’s life will be held at Grace Baptist Church 3775 Spot Rd, Cumming, Ga. on April 9, 2022 at 12:00pm. Betty Bagley, beautiful matriarch of the Bagley family, passed away at the age of 89 on January 25, 2022. Betty now joins her soulmate, Charles Farrell Bagley, who passed away in 2014. Betty loved telling the story of how they met on a blind date in 1952. They quickly fell in love and married on Valentine’s Day in 1953, which led to a lifetime of happy years together, spanning 61 years of marriage prior to Farrell’s passing. This union produced a large and tight-knit family. Betty was the mother of 6 children, and “Mamaw” to 17 grandkids, 44 great grandkids, and 10 great-great grandkids. Her family was even greater as it included all her children’s husbands and wives because she loved them as her own. Betty was always up to date on each one of them and loved to brag about them to anyone she met. One of her favorite things to do at Thanksgiving was to get everyone together for a big family photograph, which filled her with pride to see the family grow to span 5 generations. Betty leaves behind more friends than can be counted, as anybody that spent more than 2 minutes with her came away as her friend. Betty had such a radiant, joyous, and loving personality that everyone immediately gravitated towards. She freely shared her love in so many ways, including the magic that she worked in the kitchen, making sure that no visitor to her home ever went away hungry. Betty poured her love into everything she did, including the best biscuits and gravy that have ever been made. She had an amazingly sharp wit and she filled every day with laughter and heartfelt hugs. Mom/Mamaw/Betty will be missed by all. We can and will celebrate her every day until and beyond that time. Family illnesses and covid have been factors in the planning. Her wish was that everyone be vaccinated. Therefore, we request all in attendance to wear a mask especially to help protect those with compromised immune systems.
