November 11, 1940 — July 7, 2021

On July 7, 2021, Betty Joan Greer Lafevers, 80, passed away peacefully from this life into the arms of our Lord. She was born on November 11th, 1940 to Dale Alexander Greer, and Ceciel Mary Freerksen in Kelso, Washington. She married her sweetheart, Dewie Lawrence Lafevers on August 16th, 1958 in Kelso. They were later sealed for time and all eternity on July 5th, 1963 in the Salt Lake City temple and together they had four beautiful girls.

She grew up in the Pacific Northwest moving many times until she married. She and her husband Dewie bought their first home located in Bingen, Wash., and lived the majority of their 62 years of married life there. She loved country music, especially Merle Haggard and gospel music, and she loved going on drives out in the woods with her husband who would pick her bouquet of Dogwood flowers. Her greatest joys were her family, especially grandchildren, friends, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

As a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, she had a strong testimony of the divinity of Jesus Christ. She and her husband served for several years in the Portland, Ore., Temple – a calling that she loved and served faithfully. She did her best to serve her family and church.
