On Sunday, October 18, 2020, Betty Lee Nock, “Mom” to many, passed away peacefully from earth to her home in paradise. She was born on November 19, 1935 in Melfa, Virginia to the late James Garrison and Edith West Harmon.

Betty was a faithful member of St. Mark Baptist Church in Melfa, Virginia for many years. She was faithful in helping in whatever capacity she could. Betty was well known for her love of cooking and for people. To know her was to love her. Anyone who met her became like family and no matter how far away from home they may have been, they would always stop in to see “Ms. Betty” or “Aunt Betty Lee,” as she was affectionately known. She also enjoyed listening to gospel music.

Betty was previously employed by John W. Taylor Packing Company. She also was a dietician aide for the Parksley Nursing Home before staying at home to take care of her children. Cooking has always been her passion; she loved to watch cooking shows, collect cookbooks and recipes. She would call and talk to her daughters and granddaughters about cooking and sharing recipes.

On January 14, 1953, she married Lorenzo Nock Sr. From this union nine children were born: Yvonne, Margaret, Sylvia, Denise, Lorenzo, Natalie, Randolph, Deon, and Anthony.

Betty had such a beautiful personality. She was like “E.F. Hutton,” when Betty spoke, you better listen. She said what she meant and meant what she said. Her children knew that best. Betty loved her family, and adored her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them. She always looked forward to having everyone come home. If you stayed away too long, she’d let you know.

One thing that was certain, she continued the tradition of her mother and our grandmother, Mrs. Edith West Harmon. She would not let you leave without taking something with you, even if it was only a piece of bread or a bottle of water. Betty captured the hearts of many she came in contact with. Although she was the maternal mother to nine, she looked at many of her nieces and nephews as her own. She was truly the matriarch of our family.

Every Praise is to our God! We rejoice and thank God for blessing us above and beyond with such a loving and caring mother. The love she showed leaves a legacy that will last for eternity. We are thankful for the many memories that she leaves with us. She is and always will be our jewel. Rest in peace Mom. You meant the world to us.

She was predeceased by two brothers, George and John Savage; three sisters, Vandella Savage, Mary Chandler and Estella Rogers; and sister-in-law, Helen Savage.

Betty leaves to cherish many fond memories: her children; Yvonne (Isaac) Ayres of Painter, VA, Margaret Dix of Newark, DE, Sylvia (Keith) Fiddemon of Accomac, VA, Denise Byrd of Parksley, VA, Lorenzo Nock, Jr. of Accomac, VA, Natalie (Wayne) Brinkley of Wilmington, DE, Randolph Nock of Accomac, VA, Deon (Anthony) Davis of Bealeton, VA, and Anthony Nock of Accomac, VA; two sisters-in-law, Mae Anna Nock of Philadelphia, PA and Margaret Nock of Richmond, VA; sixteen grandchildren; twenty great-grandchildren; special family friends, Curtis Dix, Barbara Abbott, Renee Stewart, and Elizabeth Daniels; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She was a sweet lady. I enjoyed being her nurse. She made going to work a pleasure. She will be dearly missed by all the dialysis staff and patients
