Betty Mae Eddins

May 15, 1928 — June 2, 2020


Betty Mae (Jones) Eddins, 92, of Greensburg, died Tuesday, June 02, 2020.  She was born May 15, 1928, in McKeesport, a daughter of the late Rev. Alfred Jones and Lena Commodore Jones.  Betty was a lifelong member of the Bethel AME Church and also a member and Deaconess of the St. Paul AME Church in Port Huron, MI while living with her daughter, Vicky.  Betty was an avid reader. She was also a devout Christian who loved everybody.  Her favorite saying was, "If Jesus can love everyone so can I".  She loved music, enjoyed going to the Moose Lodge, as well as summer outdoor concerts. She was known for a hopping out of her wheel chair, grabbing your hand, and dancing her little heart out.  She loved being outside and was always the first to get her coat and shoes on when she knew we were going anywhere.  She claimed she didn't like Stevie, the dog, yet she constantly spoiled her by feeding her under-the-table. She also secretly loved and spoiled Tucker, her little great grand dog as well.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, William H. Eddins; an infant son and son, Alfred Jones; three siblings, Robert Burton, James Morris and Loretta Burton.  She is survived by her four children, Sheila Bailey (Butch) of Greensburg, Vicky Eddins of Port Huron, MI, Chris Eddins (Susan) of Greensburg and Melissa Eddins of McKeesport; two special 'daughters' Joyce Hobaugh of Irwin and Lura Oppertshauser (Eric) of Port Huron, MI; seven grandchildren, Delaine, Alfred, Jr. (Lisa), Jamie, Iesha (Chuck), Chris, Jr., Liam and McKenna; fourteen great grandchildren; seven siblings Gilbert Burton of Tacoma, WA, Irene Moorehead of Lancaster, TX, Nina Russell of Monessen, Margaret Jefferson of McKeesport, Eleanor Bussey of Upper Marlboro, MD, William Burton (Dr. Rev. Helen Wilner Burton) of Pittsburgh and Lucille White of McKeesport; and numerous nieces and nephews.  Due to the recent health crisis there will be no public viewing.   Services and interment will be private.  Betty’s family has entrusted her care to the Clement L. Pantalone Funeral Home, Inc., 409 W. Pittsburgh St., Greensburg, PA 15601 724-837-0020.  To share your memories and photos or offer your condolences please visit us at Natale N.
