BETTY FALLIS

      Betty Marie Sizemore Fallis, 82, of Salem, Virg., was summoned by the Lord to her Heavenly Home on August 10, 2015.

      She was preceded in death by her father, Gordon Sizemore, her mother, Berndena Engle Sizemore, and her sister, Glenna Bennett.

      Betty is survived by her husband of 62 years, Charles L. (Chuck) Fallis and their four children, Charles Steven Fallis, of Salem, Virg., Jane Anne Powell and Mary Beth Fallis, of Richmond, Virg., and Barbara Susan Fallis, of Lynchburg, Virg. She is also survived by her sister, Peggy Landress, of Ocala, Fla.; her nephew, John Landress of Jacksonville, Fla.; her niece Elizabeth Bennett Stewart of Tampa, Fla.; her nephew, Chuck Bennett, of Tampa, Fla.; and her cousin, Rose Lawrence, of Salvisa.

      From ages two through 18, Betty and her father performed on major radio stations in Chicago, Ill., St. Louis, Mo., Lincoln, Neb., Charlotte, N.C. and Louisville. Their musical act, known in Betty’s childhood years as “Gordon Sizemore and Little Betty,” was very popular throughout the south and Midwest, particularly during the 1930s and the World War II era. At 18, a ranking scholar of her Harrodsburg High School graduating class, and having achieved a perfect score on the college entrance exam, she entered the University of Kentucky on full scholarship.

      After college, Betty taught second grade. Later she held the position of budget analyst with the U. S. Navy in Washington D.C., after earning the highest score anyone had ever achieved on the qualifying test for that position.

      In her later life Betty was very active and involved with NARFE (National Association of Active and Retired Federal Employees.) She was a member and officer in her local Roanoke Valley Chapter 111. Then, as the wife of NARFE’s National President and CEO, she served as First Lady of this 400 thousand member organization from 2002 to 2006, a very active work-ing position. During her association with NARFE on the national level, Betty traveled exten-sively with her officer husband, participating in conventions in nearly every state as well as Panama and Puerto Rico. For the four years of her husband’s presidency she also arranged ac-tivities for the wives of National Executive Board members during the semiannual NARFE Board meetings.

      Through Betty’s many and varied experiences, the roles to which she was most devoted were those of wife and mother. In those roles, no task was too demanding for her, no sacrifice too great. On the contrary, she actively sought ways to assist and support her immediate family, and she was always more than willing to assist those more distantly related as well.

      Finally Betty loved, and was loved by, all who had the privilege to know her. She will be forever missed by family and friends alike. Betty was truly a gift, and we are grateful to have known her.

      A memorial service will be held on a future date. In the meantime, in lieu of flowers please send donations to Central Virginia Training Center Families and Friends, 2532 Keagy Road, Salem, VA 24153.

OSBY JONES

      Osby F. Jones, affectionately known as “Buggs” to many and “Poppy” by his grandchildren, 94, passed away surrounded by family on Saturday August 15, 2015.

      He was born December 22, 1920 the son of Isaac and Laurie Wheeler Jones.

      Because of the time of his birth he learned early to make it by working. He lost his mother at an early age and naturally had to help with his younger siblings. In his early years he managed a local food establishment in Nicholasville, Kentucky and was soon known to make the best chili around. In 1946 he married the love of his life Juanita Hager, they spent the next 69 years together. Buggs was a wonderful husband, father and provider.

      He was a stallion manager for thoroughbred horses and ended his career as assistant manager at Shawnee Horse Farm in Harrodsburg, in 1991. He was sought after because of his steadfastness and loyalty.  He worked and lived on the farms of several famous people including Elizabeth Arden. Through the years he was involved with youth groups at various churches and knew how to keep order with the teens.

      Most currently he was a member at Harrodsburg Baptist Church. Perhaps his strongest suit was comfort provider, at a family’s worst time he had a presence of comfort. Even when his own Marine son passed away he brought comfort and peace to his family. In a perfect world we would have more people with his character. His pride in his daughter Trish was never kept secret and the dedication that he showed to his family will be his long lasting legacy.

      He is survived by: his wife, Juanita Jones, his daughter Patricia Jones-Bendel, grandchildren, John Victor (Dustyn) Jones, Jennifer Lisle-Jones, Sara Kaitlyn Bendel, great-grandchild John Victor Jones, Jr. and several nieces and nephews.

      He is preceded in death by his parents, son Gregory Franklin Jones as well as three sisters and nine brothers.
