Betty Jarmon

She was reunited with her mother, Lillian Virginia Maiden, her father, Ruben Gibbs, Jr, her older brothers John Henry Gibbs and Donald Ray Gibbs, stepson, Broderick Jarmon, and her grandsons Darrian (DJ) McClintock, Jr. and Dennis Giggets.

Betty’s love and dedication to the Lord came when she dedicated her life to Christ at an early age. She was baptized and became a member of the Macedonia Baptist Church in Keithville, Louisiana under the leadership of the late Pastor Timothy Lewis, Sr. Betty attended Mooretown Elementary School and later graduated from Bethune Jr.-Sr. High School in 1969. She moved to Houston, TX after graduating high school to attend Texas Southern University and made Houston her permanent home. After marrying Bobby Deckard, she began her family and continued to build her career as a Division Oil Analyst. She later transitioned to a Legal Secretary working with Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, as well as Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, Littler & Mendelson, P.C., and Dewey Ballantine over her 35 year career. In the 1980’s Betty met and married Raymond J. Jarmon, Jr. and they were married in 1983.

In 1995, Betty and her family joined Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Houston, TX under the leadership of Pastor Nathan Johnson. She served as a member of various ministries with the church, the Women’s Ministry, Kitchen Ministry, Bereavement and Outreach Ministry, Publishing Ministry, the Priscilla Circle, Usher board, and dedicated Deaconess. She was also strongly involved in Christian education efforts in the church. Her passion for serving the Lord and spreading his word brought her immense joy.

Betty had a green thumb, she loved reading, and sending daily devotionals to her family and friends to keep them grounded in God’s word. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, and friend.
