On Tuesday February 15, 2022, Elizabeth Poe Jankura, loving wife and mother passed away at the age of 78.

Betty was born on June 23, 1943 in Atlanta, Georgia to C. Dwight and Gertrude Poe.

She is survived by Ray, son Carl Hollingsworth and wife Mo'nique of Atlanta Georgia; daughter Lori Sellers and partner Sean DeGayner of Hartland, Wisconsin; son Chris Feeley of Jasper Georgia; son Jay Feeley and wife Namiko of Kyoto Japan; daughter Shawna Feeley and husband Stephen Wayne of Bristol Tennessee; son Brendan Feeley and wife Mende of Dallas Georgia; daughter Linda Popham and husband Dennis of Cartersville, Georgia; Daughter Becky Jankura of Hixson, Tennessee; brother C. Dwight Poe Jr. of Burke, Virginia and eight grandchildren Brittany Feeley, Dillon, Jackson, Ethan, Marina, Erika, Emily and Jenna.
