Betty Mae Newton Baylor, 85, the widow of John Jhue Baylor, finished her earthly journey and joyously traded "thee ole' cross for a crown" on Saturday, July 3, 2021, at her residence.

Mrs. Baylor was born the daughter of Lonnie Legrand Newton and Isolene Ward Newton on October 7, 1935, in Williamsburg County. She was the 2nd born of 11 siblings, Evalene, Yoakam, Douglas "Bub", Ruthalee, Dale, Rev. Ronald, Donald, Diane, Jerry, and Rose. She was a 38-year employee of Oneita Industries and a retired employee of Kingstree Knits. She was a lifelong faithful member of Spring Pond Pentecostal Holiness Church and served over years in many positions including Deaconess, Women's Ministry Director, and Sunday School Teacher. She loved time with family and friends and vacations at the lake. She was an avid student of the Word of God and a gifted teacher "rightly dividing the Word of Truth." Ms. Betty's most important devotion was to her family and her greatest accomplishment was her fulfillment as a "Godly Beloved Mother." She was a mother to many children over the years and her home an open door to anyone needing a mother's love. She spent her life making her house a home, her arms were a haven of rest and security, and her love was a strength and support to her family and friends.

She leaves a Christian legacy to: her son, John Edward Baylor, Sr. (Faye); three grandchildren, John Edward Baylor, Jr. (Leslie), Chastity Baylor Ray, Michael Lee Baylor (Dawn); nine great-grandchildren, Winter Grace, Lindsey, Olivia, Lacey, Riley, Emily, Landon, Whitney, and Sutton; her siblings, Ruthalee (Harry) Howard, Dale (Glenda) Newton, Rev. Ronald (Shirley) Newton, Donald (Deborah) Newton, Diane McCants, Jerry (Betty) Newton, and Rose Carter.

She is predeceased by: her parents; her husband; four siblings and their spouses, Evalene Altman (Pressley), Yoakam Newton (Vera), Douglas "Bub" Newton; and two brother in laws, Jamie McCants and Harris Carter.

A Home Going Celebration will be 2PM, Tuesday, July 6, 2021, at Spring Pond Pentecostal Holiness Church, 1885 Wee Tee Road, Andrews, SC. Officiating will be Rev. Ronald Newton and Rev. Eddy Knight. Interment directed by McKenzie Funeral Home will follow in the Bloomingvale Baptist Church Cemetery, 7652 Thurgood Marshall Highway, Andrews, SC.

The Baylor family will receive family and friends prior the service from 1-2PM in the church sanctuary.

McKenzie Funeral Home is honored to serve the Newton-Baylor families.
