Betty Jane Calfee - Greenwood

Betty Jane (Guyer) Calfee, 86, beloved wife of the late Fred H. Calfee, passed away with family in her home during the beginning first hour of January 2, 2017 - a result of enduring medical conditions.  Spirited and feisty to the end, MS Betty's zest to make the best of a situation always prevailed with positive vibrancy and a quick wit that was most engaging.  

Born in the resort town of White Sulphur Springs, WV, May 26, 1930, to a large family of already many daughters and two sons of her deceased parents Grover C. and Effie Lelia (Matheny) Guyer - MS Betty excelled in enthusiastic study in her hometown high school graduating cum laude her senior year while working part time at the Greenbrier Hotel Grand Resort.
She especially enjoyed hunting with her father which developed her interest in living things of the forest. The over four decades resident to Greenwood knew her indigenous birds with authority and had no shortage of conversational exchange of each species' colors and characteristics. 

Noted for being the devoted spouse and homemaker of four children as the "domestic engineer" and "management"  of the roost she brought warmth and nurturing light to all those who came to know her albeit immediate, extended, and adopted family as well as ever inclusive of close friends of the neighborhood and medical community.  

She is survived by her sister, Mrs. Mary (Guyer) Lynch, recently of Spartanburg, SC.  A son, Michael Calfee, a daughter, Deborah Calfee in the Charlotte, NC area;  adult  grandchildren of  her deceased first born, Beverly (Calfee) Ball , Jason & Brian, Charleston, SC;  adult grandchildren, Cameron and Christian, Alexandria, VA;  minor grandchildren Nicholas, Collin, and Alannah, Yellow Springs, OH - of her deceased son, Mark J. Calfee; along with respective in-laws.   
She will be noticeably missed and - timelessly - notably loved.

Graveside services will be conducted at 2:00 pm Wednesday, January 11th, at Oakbrook Memorial Park with Pastor Phil Thrailkill officiating. 

The family will be at their respective homes and will receive friends at Blyth Funeral Home from 5 to 7 pm Tuesday, January 10th.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, Kansas 66675. For online-
