Doris Elizabeth Bley, fondly known as "Bett", succumbed to a fourteen-year battle against cancer on Thursday, June 7, 2007. She was surrounded by family and friends who faithfully supported her through the years. It is certain that all prayers for Bett gave her the strength and the courage to continue the valiant fight. Bett bravely fought the disease with dignity and humility.
To all who knew Bett, she was truly a child of God. She lived as she believed serving the Lord, sensing and administering to those in need, and loving unconditionally. Her warm hugs and contagious smile conveyed the love that she had in her heart. Even though cancer has taken Bett's physical life, it can never destroy her beautiful soul. Bett's love for all of us, her children, family and friends, will continue forever.
Bett was born Oct. 20, 1969 in Greenwood, S.C. She attended Greenwood Schools and the S.C.
Governor's School of Arts, where she pursued her gift of art. Bett also attended the University of South Carolina and Winthrop University. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church, where she was active in Circle No 5. Bett was very involved in her children's education, volunteering and attending school functions at Merrywood Elementary.
Bett is survived by her three children, Margaret Meadows, Isabel Benton and John Durham Bley.
Her children inspired her to continue her courageous battle; they were truly the "light of her life". She is the beloved daughter of Cheryl Y. McCord and John Haddon McCord, Jr and his wife, Sandy R. McCord. She is also survived by her sister Amy McCord, her brother, John H. (Jack) McCord III, and her maternal grandmother, Mattie Y. West of Saluda.
