Betty Jean Coby Thurmond was born July 2, 1952 to the parentage of James L. Coby and Dorothy J. Thomas Coby.

She was a graduate of Longview High School and then attended Kilgore College. Early on she was active in softball.

Her loving memories will be cherished by her husband, Ray; daughters, Kelley Burton (Derecko) and Sharla Stansell (Vince); grandchildren, Aniah, Jasper, Rayvin, and Yohance.
