Obituary of Betty Jean (Noyes) Duke


April 26, 1933 — March 25, 2024
Morristown, TN
Betty Jean Noyes Duke, 90, formerly of Liverpool, NY, went to her eternal home on Monday, March 25, 2024, while being compassionately cared for at TerraBella in Morristown, TN.

Betty was born April 26, 1933 in Pitcairn, NY, to Theodore and Marjorie Noyes. She grew up alongside of her 11 siblings in Carthage, NY. Betty met the love of her life, Bill Duke, on a blind date. Together they raised two children in Cincinnatus, NY. They attended the First Baptist Church of Cincinnatus where they both dedicated their lives to their Savior, Jesus Christ. It was in that little church where they served the Lord in many different capacities. Music became one of Betty’s passions which she shared by joining the choir. Her life was filled with many dear friendships that started in the simplest of ways – random conversations in stores, answering a local ad, or even a comment in the vet’s office. Betty was a friend to all.

Left to cherish her memories are her daughter, Alece (Gary) Degear; daughter-in-law, Sharon Duke; and daughter-in-love, Sue (Ron) Shippey; many cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren, family and friends.

The family will be present to receive friends on Saturday, May 18, 2024, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Cincinnatus, with the funeral service to immediately follow.
