Mrs. Betty Sue Hendrix Link, age 88, of Wilkesboro, NC, passed away Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Villages of Wilkes in North Wilkesboro, NC.

Mrs. Link donated her body to the School of Medicine at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held on Sunday October 22, 2017 at 4:00 PM in the Sanctuary at First United Methodist Church in North Wilkesboro, NC, with Rev.

Mrs. Link was born January 14, 1929 in Hickory, NC to Claude Columbus and Addie Belle Crisp Hendrix. She was an honor graduate of Granite Falls High School, receiving the Salutatorian award.

She was extremely proud of serving the church as the chair of the Card Ministry, which she founded in 2006.
