We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Sterling-White Funeral Home
Betty Fudge Colvin, age 77, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday July 12, 2022 at 1:06 PM. She was surrounded by her sons, daughters, and sister at her home in Baytown, Texas.
Betty was born to parents Floy Lee Fudge and Louise Taylor Fudge on May 13, 1945 in Lakeland, Florida. As a young adult, Betty moved to Houston and later Highlands with her husband Joe Colvin where they raised a family that included six beautiful children who loved her unconditionally.
She enjoyed good Mexican food, company, and conversation in her living room. Card games, Farkle and Yahtzee at the dining room table in her home. Betty loved to travel and see new places. She traversed the country making memories with her sons, daughters and their families and frequently visited her family in Florida. She cherished her trips to visit loved ones in the Sunshine State and would always bring back stories of fishing trips on the lake and anecdotes about her brothers. Betty was proud to be an American and never missed an opportunity to exercise her civic duty on election day.
Betty’s legacy will forever be marked by her steadfast devotion to her family and friends who she loved and cherished very much. Betty truly poured her heart and soul into her family throughout her 77 years on Earth and is now peacefully rejoicing in Heaven with our Lord.
Preceding her in death are her parents, Floy Lee Fudge and Louise Taylor Fudge Jones, son James Guilford Lowell “Jimmy” Colvin and grandson Aaron Lee Colvin and many loving brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nieces, and nephews.
