In accordance with God’s plan and promises, Betty Curry Brandon was called home on Wednesday, October 4, 2023. Betty passed peacefully at her home in Fayetteville, North Carolina with family at her side.


Betty was born on October 18, 1933 in Exie, Kentucky to Noah Marvin and Mandy Bird (Young) Curry. She graduated from Greensburg High School on May 15, 1952 and wed the love of her life, her soulmate, Thomas Allen Brandon the following day on May 16, 1952 at Greasy Creek Baptist Church in Exie. To this union were born two children, Loyd Gregory Brandon and Susan Lynn Brandon. “Tommy” preceded Betty to their eternal home on April 14, 1998.


Tom joined the U.S. Air Force in 1952 and their military travels took them to Louisiana, France, California, and Texas before returning home to Kentucky where Betty retired from Sears Roebuck & Co in Elizabethtown.
