"Ronnie" Walden; one son-in-law, Lawrence White and four of her siblings:  Eileen, Ira Jr., Lloyd and Willie Thomas.  Betty will be forever cherished by her daughter, Tanjia Walden White, with whom she made her home and her son, William C. Walden II., her only brother, Albert and his wife, Doris Thomas; her grandchildren:  Shanice White, Daijha Brown, Jasmine Walden and D'Andre Walden;  several nephews and nieces; her Church family, friends and special friends, Joyce Davila and Dolly (Milton) Smith.  A Celebration of her well lived life will be held at 12:00 noon on Monday, February 26, 2024 at Beulah Missionary Baptist Church with the Reverend George Masterson officiating.  Interment will follow in Restlawn Memorial Gardens 6605 New Hope Road in Bluewell, West Virginia.  Family and friends will serve as both pallbearers and flower bearers.  Visitation will begin at 11:00 AM at the Church.  Services entrusted to Gregory-Page Funeral Home in Welch, West Virginia.
