BETTYE JEAN CUMMINGS, was born to Fannie Mae Parker and Sidney Cummings. After her mother moved to Plaquemine, Bettye attended the public schools and graduated from Iberville High School, Class of 1969. She had four children, Reginald Joseph, Michael Anthony, Tandria and Kimberly.

Whenever you met Bettye, she was smiling and would not rest until you were laughing or smiling. For that reason, she came to be known as "Sol," like unto the sun because it shines so brightly.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, two daughters, Tandria Schlayce Cummings & Kimberly LaVerne Young (1981), niece, Felita Ann Jackson (1985), other relatives and friends. Remembering her love and warmth are: Mother & stepfather, Mrs. Fannie P. Jones, Oliver Jones, Jr.; Father & stepmother, Mr. Sidney & Eola Cummings, Brusly, LA; Gene Ellis, a special friend; her sons, Reginald J. Cummings, Vallejo, CA; Michael A. Cummings, Port Allen, LA; sisters, Rev. Ann Carson, Constance Snearl, Oakland, CA; Sheila, Sheryl Snearl,& Verlisa Cummings, Port Allen, LA; brothers, Walter Georgetown, Richmond, CA; Eddie Elmore, Jr., Baton Rouge, Kevin Cummings, LA and their families; and a host of relatives and friends.

"Bettye, as the oldest sister, I can remember when I pulled you in a little red wagon. You were always smiling. I love you!"
