Elizabeth (Betty) P. Vought passed away peacefully in her home in the early hours of Monday July 13, 2020. Betty was born on April 15, 1943 in St. Catherine’s Ontario, Canada. When she was 9 yrs old, she was adopted by her Uncle and Aunt, Gerald and Marie Monk and moved to Buffalo, NY where she grew up.
Betty raised her two boys in Olean, NY where she worked as a bookkeeper for an auto dealership and bus line. After her boys were grown, Betty moved back to the Buffalo area and worked 12 years in customer service with the Internal Revenue Service. Betty was active in charitable work, focusing on the homeless and battered women.

After she retired, she moved down to Greenville, SC to live with her eldest son. She was an active member of Mountain Bridge Bible Fellowship where she organized activities for the ladies and loved on all the new borns. Betty enjoyed crocheting, crossword puzzles and reading.

Those of us who were privileged to know Betty, remember her as a funny, loving and welcoming woman who was always there with a helping hand and a listening ear. What we remember most about Betty was that she was a consistent prayer warrior for all of us. She loved and believed God and prayed for all she came in contact with, wishing them to experience God’s amazing love and care. She will be deeply missed.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents: Gerald and Marie Monk. She is survived by two brothers: Eric Monk and his wife Dody, Kevin Monk and his wife Patricia; four nieces: Janine Carson and her husband Gary, Jackie Monk,Melissa Stanley and her husband Jordan, Andrea Monk: two sons: Eric Wood, Troy Wood: two granddaughters: Jeni Wood Enjaian, Laura Wood and her husband Aaron, four grandsons: Ricky George and his wife Candace, Ian Wood, Jacob Perry, Lucas Wood; one great granddaughter:Nevaeh George, and her “heart family,” the Tardugno Clan.

Often in the Northeast, when a person passes on during the Winter, they have to postpone the funeral until Spring when the ground is more conducive to internment. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic situation here in South Carolina, Betty’s family has decided to postpone any memorial for her until the “ground” is more conducive to the large gathering of people who want to honor and remember her. The family appreciates your understanding in this decision and will let everyone know when they reschedule the memorial. In the meantime, please feel free to leave your condolences and memories of Betty, here on this website, on her Facebook page or the Facebook page of either Troy Wood or Eric Wood. Also, if you were considering donating flowers, please consider donating to Miracle Hill Ministries or Loaves and Fishes of Greenville.

I first met Betty at MBBF and got to know her better when I (delightedly) drew her name as a Secret Sister. By the way, she sure somehow figured out it was me! From that time on, we started exchanging cards and phone calls. She was of great comfort and an encouragement to me during my husband's illness and after his death: comfort, as she prayed for us on the phone and encouragement as she repeatedly told me to trust God through all my trials---that He was faithful who had called me to Himself, and besides, He had never failed her! On my first visit after her fall, we started a Bible study together and it wasn't long after arriving that she looked seriously at me and said, "I want to pray". "But first", she said, "how are you doing?" After telling her that I was fine, she did this little giggle in the back of her throat and said, "Now tell me how you're really doing!" She was real, and I could be real with her.
I just want you all to know how much she loved everyone, her family, extended family and friends. She prayed for the people she knew and loved by name and she was in no hurry and each of you got equal time, believe me! It was a humbling experience to follow her in prayer.
She will be missed. She's left me with an example to follow, in her kind treatment and prayers for others. May God bless you and your family Eric and give you comfort and peace.

Our family thanks the Lord Jesus Christ for the privilege of knowing Grandma Betty. She is such a grand woman! Though not much in the eyes of the world, she was of great stature in the kingdom of Christ. In her last moments here on this earth, our family made a special effort not to say good bye, but to emphasize that we would see her shortly. In our sorrow for the absence of her presence here, there is great joy, for we know that she is with the Lord. The following verses give us that great comfort:

2 Corinthians 5:8
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

Philippians 1:21
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Betty is alive, and we celebrate that she is eternally with Christ. And it is in this moment that we remember several characteristics of Betty as a means to honor a life given to God.
First is love. She was a woman of intense love. It is a characteristic that only those who have experienced love from God can truly display. Starting with a love for The Lord Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior, and His Word, Betty loved her family deeply as she would often mention them in conversations, with adoration and a parental pride. She loved our family as much as any mother or Grandmother would love their own (which she did see us as her own, and we her). She always lifted her family to the Lord in prayer.
Secondly, Betty was a humble woman. She never put herself before others; always putting other’s concerns before her own. Even in the depths of her own needs, she always put others first. This characteristic had her needs in prayer always last on the list.
Thirdly, she was kind, not in a southern way, but in a Godly way. Not just an outward way, but inwardly from the heart. She extended kindness beyond the simple niceties. I have, on several occasions, witnessed Betty being treated spitefully, and yet she never returned the favor. She simply let it be as water on a ducks back, and made that individual a matter of prayer. And she loved them as well.
Fourth, her smile. She was always looking for the good in life and enjoying a good laugh or two in any conversation. We have many memories of conversations around the table and seeing her larger than life smile. There are two things that especially brought an incredible smile to her face, one that filled the room. Those are the greatness and goodness of God, and children. Remembering her smile now we can only imagine how tremendous that smile was crossing over into Her Savior’s arms.
Last, but not least by a long shot, is that Betty was a woman of constant and fervent prayer.
It’s this one characteristic that’s sets Betty out above the rest. She was a true prayer warrior. I cannot remember a time when prayer, and praying for others, wasn’t on the forefront of her heart and mind. She often shared prayer request with our family, as well as kept us lifted to the throne of grace. We never had to wonder if Betty was praying for us, she was. I don’t know if she had a written list or not, because she had an excellent memory, but she had a tremendous list of people she prayed for. Her main concern was the souls of men. She prayed for the spiritual well-being of everyone on her heart. She also was very concerned about the physical needs of people as witnessed by some of the organizations she participated in. Even when she lay in her sick bed isolated in the hospital, when one would call to check on her the conversation would quickly turn to “well how are you doing?”.
God used Betty in many circumstances in our family’s life, especially during the darkest days of my wife’s, Shelli, cancer. It will be hard to think about Betty without being reminded of this verse of “Sweet Hour of Prayer”

Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer!
May I thy consolation share,
Till, from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height,
I view my home and take my flight.
This robe of flesh I’ll drop, and rise
To seize the everlasting prize,
And shout, while passing through the air,
“Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer!”

In a word, Betty resonated the Love of God. She will be sorely missed here, but we will be soon reunited so that we may together behold the glories of Our Great God!!

Eric, your family will be in our prayers,
With Love, Mike and Shelli Tardugno

We met Betty when we joined mountain bridge Bible fellowship in early 2014. What I remember most about Betty was how loving she was. She genuinely cared about lots of people. I suffered an aortic dissection requiring emergency surgery in March of 2017 and although I didn't know her that well she literally is the only person to send me a handwritten card not once but three times over the course of my recovery. Also, I remember she took an interest in my son and always took time to see him and talk to him after church. She was so faithful and a great testimony for everyone blessed by her. Mostly, but not solely due to her faithful testimony, she was one of those people that just brought the best out of you.
