Betty Davis Maxey-Byrds was born to Golden Green and Charlie Byrds on February 9, 1945, in Dickinson, TX. Betty attended Dickinson ISD where she attended Dunbar High School. She was an early childhood educator for 36 years where she impacted the lives of many families.
Betty accepted Christ at Mt. Olive Baptist Church at an early age. She later became a member of St. James AME Church where she served on the usher board, the hospitality ministry, and was a stewardess until the church closed and then became a member of Greater Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. As her life continued to flourish, Betty gave birth to her one and only daughter, Cher Maxey, and later became a grandmother to her pride and joy, Leah Allen.
Betty was a devoted member of her community and was loved by everyone she encountered. Her presence will be missed and her memory will live on. Betty was preceded in death by her father, Charlie Byrds, mother, Golden Green, brothers Henderson Maxey and Melvin Maxey, sister, Josie Maxey. She leaves to mourn her memory daughter Cher Maxey, granddaughter Leah Allen, sisters Carrie Gary (Jewel), Gloria Little, Adell Hill, Goddaughter Aniya Roberts, special friends Theresa Dixon (Gary), Leela Ball, Rosemary Perry, and a host of nieces, nephews, and close friends.
"Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might, He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28-31
