To the family of Mrs. Teague, I am so sorry for your loss. My mother Irene worked for the Teague for many years and love them dearly. I just found out today she had passed and the service was today. My heart is broken, Mrs. Teague was such a kind person and continue to love me after my mother pass. May the Lord strengthen this family, we have lost a great person, but heaven has gained an Angel. Rest in Peace, (Irene children) Herman & Clemmie Mcwilliams and daughter Symone and Willie & Carol Boyd

Betty was one of the finest Christian ladies I have ever known. She and Frank were the greatest persons and had a real zeal for the Lord. I'll never forget their "taking me under their wings" when I worked at Laurens Glass Company the last summer after serving as youth director. They were an encouragement and example to so many. Our loss is Heaven's gain. Thank you Kim, Jeff, Julie, Addison and the rest of the family for taking care of Betty and loving her.
