She was preceded in death by her parents, C.H. “Claude” Bethune and Winnie Bethune; her sisters, Evelyn Davis and Jewell Allmon; and her brother, Waylon Bethune.
Survivors include her son, K. Lamar (Pam) Thomas; daughter, Janice Hughes (Charlie Stephens); brother, Tommy Bethune; grandchildren, Jason (Stacy) Thomas, Amy (Brad) Taylor, Adam (Jenny) Thomas, and Jared (Mandi) Powell; nine great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews also survive.
