KINGS MOUNTAIN-Betty Putnam Jones, 91, died Wednesday, January27, 2021, at Testa Family Hospice of Kings Mountain. A native of Cleveland County she was the daughter of the late Wayne and Lala Wright Putnam. Betty was a kind and gentle person who loved to cook and feed others. She made a career of feeding at least 2 generations of young students who attended the Kings Mountain Middle School, retiring after 21 years of service. As a lifelong member of Patterson Grove Baptist Church, Betty continued to serve others by participating on the Bereavement Committee, nurturing and loving others during their time of need. Betty was a dedicated student of the Gospel and shared her faith by example. Betty dearly loved her church and the Lord serving both well throughout her life. Betty gathered her family for holiday and birthday celebrations which often involved the family’s favorite treat, Irish Potato Candy. Betty loved to fill the hearts and stomachs of those she loved. It made Betty smile with endearing satisfaction to hear her children and grand-children discuss dividing up the Christmas candies to take home for later. Betty’s sense of family was also shown in her great love for her siblings and late husband and love of her life, Homer Jones all of whom she was eager to see in Heaven. While Betty will be sorely missed by those she leaves behind, as it is said in 1 Corinthians 13:8, Love never dies. The love Betty freely gave will live on. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Homer Jones; five brothers; and one sister. She is Survived by her sons, Bruce Jones and wife Heidi and Kevin Jones and wife Toni all of Kings Mountain; daughter, Lynn Tindall of Kings Mountain; grandchildren, Anissa Fleming and husband Todd, Amanda Hall and husband Monte, Jason Crawford and wife Summer, Emily Perry and husband Steve, Leistey Tindall, David Crawford, Tyler Jones, Graham Jones and Lachlan Jones; great grandchildren, Alex, Erin and husband Ryan, Andrew and wife Hannah, Blake, Daniel, Isaiah, Nicholas, Callie, Laney, and Briggs; great great grandchildren, Paige, Joshua and a baby girl due in March.
