Calhoun City---Betty Lou Brassfield Voyles, 85, passed away on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Baptist Nursing Home in Calhoun City. Born January 15, 1935, in Vardaman, she was the daughter of the late Leonard Brassfield and the late Bertha Lester Brassfield. Betty attended Dentontown School, and was a member of The Way of the Cross Church. She had a very big heart, and would give the shirt off her back if it would help someone in need. She loved to be gardening or cooking a huge meal. She also loved going to church, and spent many hours reading and studying her Bible. Above all, she loved her family very much, and cherished the time spent with all of them, especially her grandchildren.
