Durham, Betty Hodges

Betty Durham, 73, of Blacksburg, passed away, April 14, 2019, with her family by her side. She was born to the late John and Easter Hodges, August 14, 1945, in Rocky Mount, Va.

Betty is survived by three children, Angel Durham, of Blacksburg, Clifton Durham, of Montgomery County, and Joseph Durham, of Collinsville. She is also survived by 10 other children; and a sister, Anna Mae, of Rocky Mount.

Betty was a dedicated single mother who always put her children first. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She had a hard life but became a strong woman who taught her children to treat others the way they wanted to be treated. She will be missed.

Her family would like to thank the nurses at Heritage Hall who became an important part of her life. In lieu of a service, we ask that donations be made to Good Samaritan Hospice at 1160 Moose Drive in Christiansburg, VA 24073 in memory of her life.
