Obituary for Betsy Spivey


Betsy Spivey, age 80 passed away on Tuesday, December 24th, 2019 in Columbia, SC surrounded by her loved ones.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Lora and Enoch Fillinger; sisters: Nancy, Ruby, Ethel, Nadine, Rebecca and brother, Homer.  She is survived by husband, Gene; twin sister Bessie and brother in law Tom Thompson, sister Cora Adams; daughters Sharon Broome and Virginia Spivey; granddaughters Rachel (Kenny) Fights and Kayla Spivey; great grandson Jacob Fights; and many nieces, nephews and special friends.

Born a coalminer’s daughter in the mountains of Chapmanville, West Virginia, she then moved to the Flagler Beach, Florida area where she met her sweetheart of 65 years, Gene.  In addition to co-founding her legacy-Pool Patrol Service, she had a passion for cooking and music, enjoyed going to “spin and win” at a casino and playing cards.  She never met a stranger and loved to laugh.  Betsy was dedicated to her family.  The many wonderful memories her family has of her is a testament to this.  The celebration of her life will be at noon on Saturday, January 4th at the Bayview Baptist Church, 5300 Two Notch Road, Columbia.  Fellowship will directly follow the service at the church.
