Betty Jane Nunez
Betty Jane Nunez, passed away unexpectedly on September 26, 2018. She was born the youngest of three daughters to Francis Young and Frank Y. Galvan on May 30, 1954, in Tucson, AZ. Smart, outgoing, kind and beautiful with her green eyes, Betty could make friends in minutes. In her youth, she was very active in sports. She ran track and played volleyball and softball, always wanting to be where the action was and surrounded by her friends. She was a social butterfly, but always took time to listen and comfort others when they needed a friend. She was the one everyone turned to. Betty loved to dance and was a big fan of George Strait.
Betty’s work ethic was undeniable. When life was hard, she would pick herself up and find the strength to rise above her troubles. She knew how to make the best of what she had! She worked in the medical field where her compassion was her greatest asset. As a mother she was selfless, generous and caring, never letting her children go without. She was very protective of her children and worked hard to teach them good values. Though she could sometimes be stubborn about her ways, her generosity and love always shined through. She always made time for her children, and family because they were first in her life. As her children grew their relationship with her grew from parent/child to buddies to best friends. Her strength, integrity, and love became the guideposts from which they navigated their lives.
Betty’s love for her children naturally extended to her grandchildren. The title of “Nana” became her greatest pride and joy! She loved spending time with them and enjoyed attending their school and sporting events. She made them laugh like no one else could and they made her smile like no one else could.
Betty was taken from this world way to soon, but this extraordinary, beautiful, loving mother and grandmother will forever live in the hearts of her beloved family and friends. The family that she cherished so much, honors her and will miss the best mother, and grandmother they could ever have! In the words of George Strait, “It’s a love without end, Amen!”
Betty is survived by her daughters, Yvonne Nevarez (Daniel), and Linda Nunez; sons, Alex Mendez (Rosanna) and Carlos Nunez (Leanna); father, Frank Galvan and his wife Carlota; sister, Stella Mae Soto (Manny); brothers, Frank Galvan, and Mark Galvan (Kim); nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She was preceded in death by her mother, Francis Young.

To the Nunez family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Betty. When we lose a loved one in death it brings nothing but grief pain and sorrow. That’s the way Jesus felt when he was here on Earth his friend Lazarus had died he cried minutes after that He brought Lazarus back to life Lazarus had been dead in a tomb for 4 days John 11: 11-44. Jesus will do the same for the loved ones we have lost in death very soon he will bring them back to life Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5 jw.org 🌹.
