Betty Jo Caylor, 84, of Ashland, went home to her maker, Jesus Christ, on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2018, at 1:48 a.m. after a battle with ALS.
Betty was born on Dec. 1, 1933, in Rule, Texas, to Opal and J.C Wilson. Betty’s home was always warm and welcoming to any and all that walked through her door. Betty’s faith in God was the centerpiece of her life along with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Betty is survived by her three children, Ken Caylor, Rich (Geri) Calor and Patti (Bill) Miller; nine grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren.
Before it was “the norm” to have two parents working at the same time, Betty worked most of her life while raising three children with her husband “Red.” The last 20 years were working with children as the librarian at Lassen View Elementary School in Red Bluff, California.
Betty was a member of the Church of Christ in each of the cities she lived in throughout her life.
Betty is preceded in death by her daughter, Yvonne Elaine Caylor; father, J.C. Wilson; mother, Opal Wilson; sister, Lillian Cape; and her husband of 63 years, C.C. “Red” Caylor.
Services were held Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, in Winston.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in Betty’s name to the Church of Christ, 621 Park St., Ashland, OR. 97520 or to your local SPCA chapter.
