of Gregory, Michigan, age 77, died Monday, January 3, 2022 at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Chelsea. She was born January 16, 1944 in Cleveland, Tennessee, the daughter of Agner & Emma Lou (Smart) Guffey. Betty attended Garden City High School (class of 1962). She had 4 children (in 1963, 65, 66, & 77) and stayed home until Craig was born. She started working for Ford in 1969 at the Sheldon Road Plant in Plymouth, working there for 31 years.

She volunteered for 10 years delivering meals to people for Catholic Charity in the Unadilla area. Betty was a strong, loving, caring person who raised three children on her own. She was an avid reader and loved watching Jeopardy on TV (and she knew many of the answers).
