On September 17, 2020, just five days shy of her 104th birthday, Betsy R. Frix walked into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior. Her service is at 11 am, Saturday, September 26, at Community Fellowship Church of the Nazarene, 2001 N. Valley Mills Dr., with Rev. Roger Huff and Rev. Jonathan Leonard officiating. Burial will follow at Rosemound Cemetery.

Betsy was born in Gainesville, Texas to DeWitt and Bertha Dickinson Millican, on September 22, 1916. She was the 2nd of 10 children. She married Forrest Frix in 1935 and two daughters were born of this union.
She graduated from Brownwood High School and attended one year of business school.
In June 1942, she moved to Waco where she remained the rest of her life. She worked for Behrens Drug Co for 42 years and also at Jack and Jill School for 10 years.

Betsy loved God, her family, playing games with friends and grandchildren and reading. Betsy would round up as many children as she could and take them to church. She made an impact on family and friends with her strength, determination, and spirit. She spent a lot of time on the telephone, wishing “Happy Birthday” to those in her church family. Betsy loved to volunteer and received a certificate when she was 95 years old from the elementary school for helping with their reading program. God was one constant for Betsy. She asked Him to guide her, protect her, and help her make it through all circumstances. She had complete faith that He would do so – and He did. She will be missed by her church family and her friends at Harrison Senior Center.

Betsy was preceded in death by her parents; a stillborn sibling; sisters, Mae Bourn, Ruth Clements, Helen Rendle, and Rebecca Millican; brothers, DT Millican, John Millican, and Norman Millican; and grandchildren, Darla Johnson and Greg Lay.

She is survived by her sister, Carolyn McNabb; daughters, Glenda Johnson and Arlena Lay; 5 grandchildren, Steve (Julie) Crouse, Dennis (Tammy) Crouse, April (Scott) Adams; 9 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren.

I was very young and it was my first job, I met Besty at Behrens Drug and she was the sweetest happy lady. Always worked hard and had a smile for everyone. I felt so guilty because I told her I would take a kitten but later the other lady's cat had a Siamese kitten in her litter. Besty told me not to worry she would have taken the Siamese too. I was just thinking about her the other day. So glad to have seen this and learned more about what a wonderful person she was. Kristina (Wallace) Guerra
