Notes

**NOTE - TIME AND DATE OF SERVICE HAS CHANGED**

Elizabeth Carmon Cota, better known as “Ms. Betty”, passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 31, 2017, at the age of 105. At a young age, she came over on a boat with her Mom and brother, John and they resided in Davy, West Virginia until she married in 1944. She was one of 9 brothers and sisters.

Her immediate family consists 2 daughters, Vickie Cobb, who resides in Raleigh, N.C. & Catherine Plewman who lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her only son, William Cota, known as “Billy” to her only, resides in Norcross, Georgia. She also has 5 grandchildren, Tammy M. Pulley of Wendell, N.C., Denise George of Raleigh, N.C., Natalie Christianson of Georgia, James Plewman of Johannesburg, South Africa, Melanie Cota and 7 great grandchildren, Ashley Pulley of Zebulon, N.C., Samantha Pulley of Wendell, N.C., Kaydee Thomas of Pooler, G.A., Samuel Thomas of Kite, G.A., Anthony Miranda of Escondido, C.A., and Ella and Art Christianson of Georgia. Her other extended family reside in Virginia, West Virginia, and Florida.

Besides being a soap opera junkie, she loved reading love stories and mysteries, which gave her such an active imagination.

She was happiest when surrounded by family, especially her grandchildren or great grandchildren.

So, “Ms. Betty”, now you are free to have that occasional beer with a hamburger and French fries.

Enjoy Ms. Betty, you deserve it! We love you and we will miss you!
-Your loving family

My Grandma was very sweet but also had a feisty side. She made me laugh with some of the things she would say and not realize how it sounded.

The things i remember most about her was her LOVE for coffee.

She always finished the crossword puzzle in the Sunday morning newspaper before her eyesight started failing. She loved playing scrabble and rook(she was very competitive.) She also loved watching football and always picked the opposite team that my Grandpa picked. Typing this now, i realize that my competitive nature and love for football came from her.
She was a great cook. Her cabbage rolls and gravy were the best. She still helped with her gravy during the Holidays from her wheelchair until the last few years. We never felt like we could make it is as good as she did.

I am already missing her so much but i know she is in a better place enjoying her coffee, normal food, reading again and doing her crosswords.

I love you Grandma!!

Vickie, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Yes, she lived a long life but that doesn't make losing her any easier. You were always a good daughter and I am sure she appreciated every visit and every kind word you spoke. Love, Marianne
