Obituary for Betty Jean Joseph

Betty Jean Joseph passed away on August 12, 2023, after a long battle with cancer. Her final moments were spent peacefully in her home in Pensacola, Florida, surrounded by family and close friends.

Betty had a big heart and a generous spirit. Her upbeat attitude and love of travel meant Betty never met a stranger, and she will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She was very active in her church Good Hope AME. She was a missionary, she sang in the choir, she was a stewardess, and was on the financial committee. Betty was also a member of the Ladies Auxiliary Unit #193. She cooked meals and helped serve lunch to veterans every Tuesday at the American Legion Post #193.

Betty’s family asks that she be remembered for the joy she brought to others in life and not for the sadness of her passing.
She is survived by her husband, Alvin Joseph Sr.; her children, Antoinette Barber, Alvin “AJ” Joseph Jr., and Shantae Joseph, her 5 grandchildren, Victor, John, Natasha, Darius, and Ryan; her beloved dog, Bailey; and her collection of thimbles.

A memorial service will be held at Trahan Funeral Funeral Home, August 26, 2023. The family invites friends to join them at 10:30 a.m., and the service will follow at 11:00 p.m.

Flowers and memorial gifts are welcome but not necessary.
