Betty Summers ( 1950-2016)

Betty Ruth Summers was born April 22, 1950 to J.W. Summers and Margaret Remley in Warren, Arkansas. Raised by Robert and Callie Remley, who she spoke of often and loved beyond words. Betty attended Bradley County High School where she was a majorette under the direction of Lee Mitchell. She moved to Pasadena to live with her Aunt Littie and uncle Willie Hines. At 16, Betty met Eddie Haywood and from that relationship came the birth of her son Dennis. Betty was one of the first students to attend Blair High School where there was an infant care program in place for teen mothers. At the age of 19 she graduated high school. At 22 she graduated from Pasadena City College with an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts. On September 4, 1969 Betty married Clarence Alexander. It was during those years of marriage that Betty really grew and expanded her outlook on her future. Evelyn Alexander, Betty’s mother-in-law was one of the most influential people in her life. “Mom”, as Betty referred to Evelyn, encouraged her to live life without regrets. Betty passed that way of thinking down. Divorced in 1978, Betty didn’t let it get her down; she sold the station wagon and bought a Datsun 240z. She got a new hairstyle and took a trip to Jamaica with her best friend Barbara. She returned a different woman. That was the beginning of her love affair with Reggae music. Betty joined Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in 1994 and for the second time in her life she fell in love with something other than her family. She fell in...

Barbara Ann Stewart (1931 – 2016)

Barbara Ann Stewart was born July 27, 1931, in El Paso, Texas. Her parents were Modern and Elizabeth Stewart. They moved to Los Angeles, CA. when she was four. She had ten brothers and sisters. Both of her parents, and many of her brothers and sisters have since passed away.  Joyce Feeney was the most recent sister she has lost. She married Richard Frias and had two children, boys, named Richard Frias and Ronald Frias. She later divorced and married Harold Sheets. Harold passed a few years ago. Barbara was raised in Los Angeles.  Not our Los Angeles, but the small town of Los Angeles of the 30s and 40s.  Where kids roamed free, taking the street car to places like Olvera St, Griffith Park and the beach.  She would roll down her street out across Olympic Blvd and never a car in sight.  When she wanted to go swimming, she would just hop the fence at the Ambassador Hotel and was never chased away.  From the very beginning she was a person of strong convictions; never took anything she didn’t have to and always did what was necessary, she was a fighter.  Let’s just say early on she had a disagreement with her teacher, left the classroom, walked down the street and enrolled herself in 3rd grade public school.  That was her, her entire life. Her hobby was shopping.  Every month, with 2 kids in tow, she would take the train from Fullerton to Los Angeles for the “month end” sales at all the downtown department stores. Many times, shopping was shared with her sister Joy. Later in...

Arrie M. Moore (1935 – 2016)

Arrie Moore was born on August 6, 1935 in Fitzpatrick, Alabama to the late Nathaniel Huffman and the late Alberta Henderson.  She was raised by her grandparents in a loving, Christian home and accepted the Lord into her heart at an early age. Her relationship with the Lord grew sweeter as time went on, and she looked forward to the day when she could see his great glory.   Arrie was actively involved in many Christian ministries over the course of her long, blessed life. She actively served in the Grace Community Church’s prayer room ministry and Sojourner ministry. She was also a discussion leader for Bible Study Fellowship for many years and discipled other women in their growing relationships with the Lord. Arrie was also a powerful prayer warrior and caregiver to her church’s sick and shut in population and inconspicuously visited and cared for others who needed someone to care for them.  She was also a member of the Scott United Methodist Church Evangelism committee and had a bleeding heart for perishing souls. Arrie taught her family and all of those around her to pray expectantly with faith as small as a mustard seed. She leaves a lasting legacy of family prayer, faith, and never-ending trust in God’s word. Arrie graduated from Elizabeth Merritt High School in Midway, Alabama in 1953.  In 1958 she attended Tuskegee Institute School of Nursing and obtained her B.S in nursing in 1958.  She soon became a registered nurse and was offered employment at the Veteran’s Administration Center in Los Angeles in 1958.  She became head of psychiatric nursing at the Los...

Elizabeth Sedat (1914-2016)

Elizabeth Susan Rusling Sedat (Betty) was born in San Diego, California on October 3, 1914, and passed away on July 15, 2016, completing a lifespan of 101 years, 9 months, and 12 days. Originally she was named Gladys Betty Moir being the daughter of Doris Collins and Henry Moir, but was later adopted by Cora Snider and William Rusling.  Betty attended Los Angeles schools through high school, and later graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, California in 1936 with honors. During Betty’s formative years the Rusling family were members of the Church of the Nazarene, and had a close association with the family of Phineas P. Bresee, one of the founders of that denomination. Indeed, she was a charter member of the Santa Monica, California Church of the Nazarene. Cora Rusling had been a missionary to Japan, and instilled in Betty a deep spiritual desire to serve on the mission field, especially teaching young people her passion—music.  Accordingly, in 1936 Betty went to Guatemala to teach music in a Nazarene school, the country where she met William Sedat, originally from Eastern Europe, who had recently arrived in Guatemala to start linguistic translation work among the Kekchi Maya. After a lengthy courtship, mostly by correspondence, Betty and William were married in Guatemala City on August 17, 1940. During the following years Betty not only typed the innumerable drafts of the Kekchi Maya New Testament that William was working on (dedicated in 1961), but also attended to the ever increasing demands of an expanding family, with first a set of twins (Jean and John) and later Nancy and then David.
