Betty Simon Rufus, 58, departed this world about 6:00 a. m. on Saturday, March 30, 2019. Born June 12, 1960, in Sumter, she was one of six children of the late Earnest and Pauline Jenkins Simon. Betty always had a deep love and affection for her cats; that love has showed so much that SPCA has even, in her memory and honor, named one of her very own kittens after her. She was a woman full of life and to her family always a blessing to be around. She leaves to mourn; three sons, Wylie Rufus (Michelle), Billy Rufus (Connie), Leroy Rufus (Seeta-Mari); two brothers, Earnest Jenkins (Mary) and James Earl Simon; a sister, Barbara Simon (Spencer); a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, close relatives and friends.
