Betty Kelley “Bebe” Casey of Slocomb, AL passed away on Saturday, July 9, 2022, after a long-fought battle with Alzheimer’s. She was 93.
Betty was born December 8, 1928, in Coffee Spring, AL to the late Lennie and Bascom Kelley. She worked with her late husband Glenn Casey, his brother, and wife Annice and Ernest Casey at Casey Brothers Lumber Company, a business they owned together for 42 years. Betty was a leader in the community. She served on the Slocomb City Council, worked with the local chapter of Veteran of Foreign Wars (VFW), and was an active member of the Slocomb Alumni Association. She was a dedicated member of the First Baptist Church of Slocomb, serving as Secretary of WMU, volunteering on the bereavement committee, delivering audio recordings of the Sunday service to the homebound, and singing in the choir. After her time in Slocomb, she spent 15 years at the Terrace at Grove Park in Dothan, AL where she enjoyed many activities including playing bingo. Even in the twilight of her life, she could still beat many in a game of dominoes.
Above all, she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who will be profoundly missed.
Her parents, brothers, sister, and husband, Alto Glenn Casey Sr. preceded her in death.
