Obituary for Ms. Betty Jean Shields

July 30, 1945 - February 15, 2021
Spokane, Washington | Age 75

Warm hearted mother


Betty Jean Shields passed this Presidents day, February 15th, 2021, after a prolonged decline in health, at the age of 75.
Born July 30th, 1945 in Rector Arkansas, Betty moved to the bay area of California, where she raised two boys. She selflessly dedicated her life to her children, where she taught the importance of good southern manners, compassion, humor, charity, and hard work.
Betty had a great sense of humor, always telling and appreciating jokes and had a warm joyous laugh and big smile. She nurtured creative hobbies with her boys, encouraging musical instruments, art, and outdoor play, reading, cooking, and Faith. She loved music, classic films, and dancing in the kitchen.
She is preceded in death by her Father, William Lowry Shields, Mother, Nellie Mary McCord, and Brother, Billie Mack Shields.
She leaves behind sons, Shane Crawford, and Corey Douglas, Sisters, Donna and Martha, Brothers Nathan and Danny, as well as four grandkids, five great grandkids, and countless cousins, nieces, and nephews.
We will all miss her dearly, but we know she has finally found peace and rest. We want to thank our friends and family for their amazing support in this difficult time. We love you.
