Betty Jean Goines, 85, passed away peacefully to her heavenly home on March 3, 2021 after a series of illnesses God gracefully led her through. Betty Goines was born in Frederick, MD on August 20, 1935 and she was the daughter of the late Otis and Mildred Bell. Betty was preceded in death by her husband, George Goines, who passed away on June 19, 1993.\r\n\r\n"Betty Jean", as she was effectively known, was so loved by so many in Frederick for her sweet spirit and her infectious laugh. Everyone that she met, in any situation in her life, always fell in love with her. She was loved very deeply by her family and friends. \r\n\r\nBetty Jean was a devoted member of Asbury United Methodist Church where she served in many areas of service including, the Usher board, the United Methodist Women, and the Golden Connection. She also enjoyed participating in plays and she was an original member of the Souls on Fire Gospel Choir, where she sang with them and other choirs in the church for over 30 years. She was truly a God-fearing woman who always made her church participation a high priority in her life. Betty Jean also served as a member of the Madam C.J. Walker Temple #509 where she faithfully served for over 62 years in various positions. She was a graduate of Lincoln High School and was employed as a Supervisor at the Maryland School for the Deaf for over 30 years until her retirement. \r\n\r\nBetty Jean loved to shop and cook large meals every day. Her age never slowed her down from getting out of the house, jumping on the bus and catching the next sale before it ran out! She truly had the energy of a young teenager. She would do anything for anyone, as she was very empathetic, very humble and lived simple. She often worried about others more than she did for herself. She was an avid fan of crime shows, game shows and so hip that she even watched shows on MTV! Betty Jean truly had a strong fighting spirit and she fought until God was ready to call her home. \r\n\r\nBetty leaves to cherish her memory, one Daughter, Yolanda Goines and one son, Kevin Goines, both of Frederick MD.
