Betty Gail Frost went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, July 17, 2023. She passed away unexpectedly at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, NC.  It was with God’s grace that she did not suffer long and that she was surrounded by each of her four children at the time of her passing.

Betty was born on Jan. 29, 1934 in Mocksville to Annie and Ernest Frost. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: 4 sisters, Katherine Bunch, Louise Daigle, Ernestine Kincaid, and Anne Frost. Betty loved her sisters; she often traveled with them, attending family reunions.

Betty graduated from Mocksville High School and Forsyth Technical College with a degree in nursing. She was very compassionate about helping others, which led to a long career at Lynn Haven Nursing Home, Wake Forest Baptist Hospital, and ultimately Oak Summit, from which she retired at age 75.

Betty enjoyed gardening with all flowers, especially roses. She was a member of Mocksville Garden Club, where she volunteered and was a Master Gardener. Betty was a member of First United Methodist Church in Mocksville, where she enjoyed attending the adult Sunday school class with many of her friends.

Betty loved her family. She is survived by: her sons, Mark Ellis of Mocksville, Tim Ellis (Shari) of Raleigh, and Brent Ellis (Lucia) of Mocksville; a daughter, Kim Towery (Scott) of Lewisville; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
