Betty Jo Funderburk

Betty Jo Funderburk went home to be with the Lord on Monday, May 30th at 9:25pm surrounded by her loving family. 

She was a loving, caring mother and a pastor’s wife, full of compassion for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and all that loving knew her as “Momma Jo.” She always had a smile on her face that was extremely contagious.

Momma Jo loved playing games, watching her favorite teams, the NC Tarheels and Atlanta Braves, play all the while saying the games were fixed. Lol! She also loved to watch her favorite game show, Family Feud. Some of her favorite times were when her house would be filled to the brim with family all around her. It never failed that when departing to go our separate ways, we were singing her favorite songs together. 

Momma Jo was a praying, God-fearing woman who was blessed to live 90 years, just 9 days shy of her 91st birthday. She was a member of Grace Baptist Church in Monroe, NC. Oh, how she loved going to church. She is now in heaven with the Lord but her prayer here on earth was that she would be reunited someday with all of her family. Thank God for His Mercy and Goodness!

Betty Jo was preceded in death by her husband, Bill Funderburk. She is survived by her four children. Vickie (Ronnie) Burgess of Indian Trail, NC, Danny (Shelley) Funderburk of Waxhaw, NC, Cathy (Rod) Price of Indian Trail, NC and Steve (Pam) Funderburk of Marshville, NC. Also surviving her are 9 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. 

The family will receive visitors for a viewing on Saturday, June 4th at Grace Baptist Church, 3411 Weddington Road, Monroe, NC beginning at 11:00am. A funeral service will follow at 12:30pm with graveside services immediately following at Lakeland Memorial Park. All are invited to attend.

Dear Family. I pray for you in this loss. Your Mom was one of mentors in my young faith. You as a family taught me what a family of God looked like here on earth. I remember all the days and night at your home and the love that abounded. I love you all and pray for Gods peace to be with you.

So many times, whether going to the house to catch the quartet bus or for a visit, your Mom always met you with a sweet smile and a warm welcome. As The Revelaires sang so many times "I'll see loved ones who have gone on before me. And my friends, they've been gone so long. And there on streets of gold, King Jesus I'll behold! What a day!!!!! You are in our prayers
