Betty Jo Garner Barnes, 77, of Tar Heel passed away on Monday, Jan. 23, 2023 at Cape Fear Valley Hospital.

Betty was a hardworking, talented lady. She played the piano and loved gospel music. She always looked forward to attending the National Quartet Convention in Gatlinburg, Tenn. and going Christmas caroling. Her hobbies also included shopping at the beach, mountain trips, cooking and doing word puzzles. Her warm smile and beautiful voice will be missed here on earth but can now be heard in that heavenly quartet.
