On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, Betty Jean Manning Conyers heard that still small voice saying “Come, let me give you peace”. Mrs. Betty was born on October 4, 1945 in St. Stephen, SC, to the late Richard Amos Manning, Sr. and Ida Mae Horne Manning. She was educated in the public schools of Berkley County.

Betty loved cooking (known for her collard greens, chitterlings, potato salad and her cheerwine/pineapple punch). She enjoyed shopping, collecting ink pens and playing games on her phone and tablet. She was a longtime Certified Nursing Assistant since 1984 working throughout the Triad area. Her last and final assignment was at Piedmont Christian Home of High Point where is was loved and appreciated by co-workers and residents. She enjoyed working even in her latter years and was always willing to serve. She NEVER retired!!!

Mother Conyers as she was affectionately known served faithfully at Holy Ghost Temple COGIC under the leadership of Bishop Joseph Brinson Sr. and Cornerstone Church of Christ under the leadership of Apostle James H. Carter. She was an active member of Pneuma Pentecostal Church where Apostle Faye Duncan-Thomas is the pastor. She loved her pastor and her church. She always was willing to give a helping hand out and a helping hand up. She served on the kitchen committee and the Mother’s Board.

On January 15, 1964, Betty was married to the late Herbert Lee Conyers, Sr. To this union, six children were born. Betty was preceded in death by her loving mother Ida, two brothers, Richard Jr. and Johnnie, two sisters Helen and Annie Ruth, her husband Herbert, and one son Reginald Sr.
