May 13, 1932 — April 7, 2022

Betty Jane Dickerson Rhudy, 89, went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, April 7, 2022, at her home in Nettleton.  She leaves behind a great example of faith, love, and joy to her three children, Merlene Partridge (Bruce) of Madison, Terry Rhudy (Lisa) of Picayune, and Christie Rhudy Lee (Tony) of Tupelo; grandchildren, Kevin Rhudy (Kristen) of Victoria, MN, and Karen Rhudy Herndon (Daniel) of Starkville; bonus grandchildren, Chip Partridge (Leslie) of Madison, Wesley Lee (Brianna) of Tupelo, Mason Lee (Jessica) of South Fulton, TN, and Jayce Lee of Tupelo; great grandchildren, Maddox Herndon, Grey Herndon, Lexi Herndon, Klara Rhudy, Kadence Rhudy, and Kamden Rhudy; bonus great grandchildren, Hailey Partridge, Ches Partridge, Oliver Lee, Weston Lee, Beckett Lee, and Brooks Lee.  She is also survived by brother-in-law, Wayne Rhudy (Wanda), sisters-in-law, Lottie Stephens (Bill), Jane Rhudy, and Fredna Rhudy; and a host of nieces and nephews.

 

She was born on May 13, 1932, to Floyd Dickerson and Annie Mae Coggin Dickerson.  She was the last surviving member of her brothers and sisters.  She was preceded in death by the love of her life for 67 years, William Leon Rhudy; brothers, Wiley Dickerson (Mary Helen), John Owen Dickerson (Ruby), Junior Dickerson (Marie), and Tony Dickerson; sisters, Nellie Culver (Jack) and Charlotte Raper (W.C.).  

 

She was a member of the Nettleton Pentecostal Church.  She loved spending time with her family and friends, shopping, and annual family trips to the Smoky Mountains.  

 

The family would like to give special thanks to Faye Gann, Marteil Bell, and Linda Berryhill who took excellent care of mom during her illness.  We also thank Kindred Hospice for their care during her last days especially Abby Jones who went above and beyond.
