Betty June Lewis, a lifelong resident of Tarrant County, died peacefully in her sleep on July 19, 2020.
Betty was born June 25, 1932 in Fort Worth. After graduating at age 16 from Northside High School she enrolled in night classes at TCU and accepted a job with Jones & Conner law firm in the W T Waggoner building beginning a 70 year career in real estate law and procedures – retiring at age 86 in 2018.
Betty married Guy Allen Lewis on July 6, 1957 and for 56 years they were a force of nature – attending every party, gala, deb ball, symphony, ballet, opera, play and art show they could. They were members of the Kimbell, Amon Carter and Modern art museums, as well as The Fort Worth Club, The Petroleum Club and Ridglea Country Club where they could be seen regularly dancing to the music of Charlie Campbell.
Betty raised champion quarter horses with her father and was also a competitive ballroom dancer with her friend Bryce Evans, but will always be remembered as one of the best closers in Fort Worth, working years for Rattikin, Alamo and McKnight Title Companies. She retained a loyal following of realtors, lenders and attorneys all looking to her to make their deal work and most have a story of Betty coming to their rescue because of her ability to remain calm and find common ground.
She was preceded in death by her husband Guy, her parents Gladys & Johnnie Lowe, her sister Dorothy, her niece Shari and great niece Amanda.
Survivors: Her son, Gregory Allen Lewis, granddog Beau, great nephew Johnathon and his fiancé Andrea, and a host of friends and acquaintances. Many thanks to her wonderful caregivers Jade and Silvia, Dr. Janice Knebl, Liz McGuire, Travis Couey and everyone at Beyond Faith Hospice.
