Betty Cunningham Angeletti, affectionately known as ''Memee'' to many, went to be with her Lord on Friday June 19, 2009 at 12:15 a.m.
Betty was the wife of John Angeletti for a wonderful 57 years while residing in West Memphis, Arkansas.
Betty was the daughter of the late Willie Lewis and Eva Cunningham. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Lewis Quincy Cunningham, Robert Cunningham and sister, Cleo Ward.
She leaves a loving and dear sister, JoAnn Bloodworth of Crawfordsville, Arkansas.
Betty was the mother of five; Vince Gasper Angeletti of Crawfordsville, Arkansas, Ann Marie Collard of West Memphis, Arkansas, Joni Clair Bowen of Escatawpa, Mississippi, Jon Arthur ''Art'' Angeletti of Crawfordsville, Arkansas and Gigi Wright of Heth, Arkansas.
She also leaves behind five children spouses; 18 grandchildren; 10 grandchildren spouses; 19 great-grandchildren and two soon to arrive great-grandchildren. Memee was an inspiration to all in many ways especially through her well known cooking which inspired her cookbook's ''Merry Christmas 2002'' (a family edition) and ''Come Eat With Me'' (her published work).
Betty's love for the Lord showed in her fruitful life to all that knew her as she faithfully and unselfishly served others. Her life was a testimony to James 4:10, her favorite scripture, ''Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and he will lift you up.''
She was an active member at First Baptist Church in West Memphis, Arkansas, where she whole-heartedly used her beautiful alto voice in the choir. She loved to sing for her Lord and Savior. Popee and Memee together claimed on their personal friendship card: We owed a debt we could not pay, He paid a debt He did not owe.
