Betty Marie Comer Ramey

June 15, 1935 — March 15, 2024

Abingdon

Betty Marie Comer Ramey, 88, of Abingdon passed away smiling in the arms of Jesus on Friday, March 15, 2024. She was born in Seaboard, Virginia to the late Joseph and Willia Mae Dishman Comer. Those left to cherish her memories are her loving and devoted husband of 64 years Claude Ramey; three children: Kimberly (Scott) Sams, Joseph (Vivian) Ramey, and Pamela (Tony) Malone; grandchildren Savanna (Mitchell) Blevins, Nicholas Ramey, Colbey Britt, Tanner Lloyd, Magan Ramey and Kaeli Sams; great-grandchildren Brayden, Madelyn, and Mazzy; and two sisters Joann (Robert) Branham and Linda (Coy) Taylor. 

Betty was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved nothing more than to tell everyone of their accomplishments. Before moving to Abingdon, she attended Garden Creek and Big Branch Church of Christ where she was very involved. She taught Sunday school, sang in the choir, helped with the nursery, and devoted her time to the church. She made sure her children were raised knowing the love of Jesus. In her later years, Betty was a member of First Christian Church of Abingdon. She gained many sweet friendships during her time there. Betty loved traveling with her husband Claude. She particularly enjoyed taking the back roads and finding new little country stores to explore. She also enjoyed cooking for her family, reading, crocheting, and shopping. Betty was blessed to have two loving sisters. The three girls lost their parents at a young age and Betty shared a very special bond with Joann and Linda. They talked nearly every day. If you knew Betty, you saw that she never knew a stranger. Betty was a true friend to everyone.
