Betty Justice-Anderson, age 85 of Myrtle Beach, transitioned to Heaven on November 27, 2021.  

She was born on May 10, 1936 in Stuart, Virginia to Walter and Elsie Justice, the youngest and only girl of three children.  She was graduate from Hardin Reynolds Memorial School and worked at J.P. Stevens in Stuart for many years.  She married Otis Lawless Jr. (deceased) in 1954 and by 1959, with the addition of two daughters, they were a family of four.  

Betty was a devoted mother and spent the next 26 years in Patrick County Virginia mothering her two children and their many friends.

In 1983 she married the love of her life, Jesse Anderson (deceased) and moved to Myrtle Beach.  This marriage gave her four stepchildren that she loved dearly, Nancy Curtis (deceased), Christy Bracken, Lynne Butler, and Eddie Anderson, along with their children. 

She was a member of Oasis of Hope and loved her Church family.  Her Pastor, Jeff Wood and his wife Etta were very special to her. 

Betty was an entrepreneur who knew no limits.  She and Jesse owned Jesse Anderson Plumbing and Jesse's Home Cooking for many years.  She was a licensed Real Estate Agent for several years. 

Betty lived life to the fullest.  She loved gardening, dancing, and cruising, and she always sparkled.  She had the gift of hospitality and her home was always open.  She loved to laugh and she loved with her whole heart.  Betty loved her family and loved the Lord above all.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her two husbands, and her two big brothers, James (Choo Choo) and William (Bud) Justice.

Left to cherish her memory are: her beloved daughters, Debbie (Bill) Cottrell, and Brenda (Tony) Boothe, her grandchildren, Tanner and Morgan Boothe, Palmer and Kati Cottrell, Ali DeHart, and Madison Ferguson who brought so much joy to her life.  She also leaves 9 great-grandchildren that she loved playing with and her special friends, Joan, Mike, and Sid who were her Myrtle Beach family.

Celebration of Life services will be held both in Myrtle Beach and Stuart, Virginia at later times.
