McGee, Bettie Hastings July 28, 1928 - February 19, 2017

After a long and fulfilling life, Bettie Hastings McGee, 88, passed away at her home in Diamond Springs, CA on Sunday, February 19, 2017. Bettie was born on July 28, 1928 to Harry and Edna Hastings in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She is survived by her three daughters, Brenda Roberts of Sacramento, CA; Wanda Marshall of Atwater, CA; Sandie Brown of Manteca, CA; and also her sister, Gadonna Rierson of King, NC. She was Gramma or "Gma" to more than a dozen grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bettie grew up in Winston-Salem, NC, but moved to California in the late 1950's. After raising her children in Sunnyvale, she moved to Placerville in the early 1980's. Her lifetime of occupations varied from work in the Telecom Industry (GTE/Verizon) to running her own business installing automotive lifts. Always a very social person, she had countless friends from her church, neighborhoods and the local WPAC, where her titles ranged from Member, to President, to Actress in their stage plays. Bettie loved participating at her church, watching her grandkids play sports, camping and cruising with her family, playing cards on Tuesday's with her friends, watching the 49ers and the Kings play, trips to Lake Tahoe, working puzzles, reading her paperback novels and playing with her dog, Sammie. Bettie was a very strong and independent woman up until her last day with us. She will live in our hearts and memories forever. Family and friends are invited to attend Memorial Services on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at the Calvary Chapel of Placerville, 6575 Commerce Way, Diamond Springs, CA 95619.
