Betty Childs Whittaker, 87, entered into Eternal Life with her Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven at home surrounded by her loved ones on Friday, January 8th, 2021.

Betty was born in Hyacinth, Virginia to Benjamin Franklin and Nettie Pearl Webb Childs.

Betty was a committed follower of Jesus Christ and a charter member of Victory Baptist Church in Warsaw. She was devoted to her husband, her children and their families and loved spending time with each as well as her extended church family.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband (James) William and she is survived by her children James 'Leslie' Sydnor (Andrea), Nancy 'Darlene' Martin, Sandra McKenney, Cheryl Goodwyn (Wesley), Terry Lewis (Charles), Sharon Courtney (Edward), Barbara 'Bobbi' Lawson (Jim Grimes), Roger Whittaker, 19 grandchildren, and 26 great-grandchildren.

Betty left a legacy to her family of God’s amazing love and grace, along with her well-used Bible. We look forward to the day we will be reunited in Heaven. Graveside Services will be held on Sunday, January 10th, 2021 at Bethany Baptist Church, Callao where she will rest beside her beloved husband.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to Riverside Hospice Foundation, 289 Hospital Road, Tappahannock, VA 22560

James Larry Mahan

Posted at 03:19pm
My Name is James Larry Mahan. My Mother is Hilda Louis Childs (Mahan) Self. Betty is my aunt, my mom’s sister. I regret that I did not have the opportunity to get to know my aunt Betty. My mom and dad (William Melvin Mahan) separated when my brother Billy, sister Joyce and I/ we were very young (perhaps 3 or perhaps younger). My brother, sister and I became orphans of who ever whole take us in, so I lost touch with the Childs family. I ended up with my Uncle Sam Mahan/ aunt Evelyn Mahan. I do remember my aunts and uncle Child’s from when I was very young. I use to love visiting them. I’m sure I met Betty and the other siblings back then. I do know I loved them and felt loved by them. Then there was a break in the relationship between the Mahan and the Childs family. So sad. I missed out on so much not having relations with my mom’s side of the family. I suppose they did not know where I was and the bond was broken, never to be re-mended.
Betty, I Love You. I have warm feelings and memories from my early childhood. I have been told only the most wonderful things about you. Please Rest In Peace. Please Give my Mom (your sister Hilda) a hug for me (tell her I Love her), also my Grand dad and Grand mother Childs. I look forward to the greatest of Family Re-unions when we can all be together again.
