Dec 30, 1927---Aug 11, 2022

Elizabeth R (Murray) Jaimes wife of Frank Jaimes, daughter of Robert James Murray, and Flora (Pearce) Murray passed away Thursday August 11th. Betty (Momo) is survived by her daughter Denise Gillis and her husband Steve, her son Mark Jaimes and his wife Jayne, 5 Grandchildren, Shonna, Jenny, Ben, Lizzy, and Jacque. She also has 6 great grandchildren who she loved and adored. 

 

Betty was born on December 30, 1927 in Framingham, England in the “Castle on the Hill” and grew up during difficult and uncertain times. War took away her father at an early age from the 1st World War; the 2nd brought buzzbombs and rockets that randomly struck the town at any time. It was during this time when she met Frank Jaimes who was a gunner and trainer and a US Sergeant of a B17 Flying Fortress at the Datchet air force base near Framlingham Castle. Betty attended dances with him at the base, once even when the Glen Miller Orchestra performed. They married while in England and when the War ended Betty moved to the United States and as did many brides, came across the Atlantic on the Queen Mary Ocean liner. Betty was the youngest of 8 and has many living relatives in England still.

 

In the States Betty and Frank moved to the Kansas City Metro Area and she did become a naturalized US Citizen, but was always British. They purchased land and built a home in Kansas City, Ks. and never lived anywhere else. She attended the Stony Point Christian Church when it was the Little White Church on the Hill and it has always been an important part of her life; she would coax her two toddlers to Bible School every week to make sure they had the love of Jesus in their hearts. She loved her church friends and the love they gave her back. The Storehouse is something she was most proud of because there was no doubt feeding the hungry was doing good for those who needed it the most.

 

Her husband was called up long ago. Now she can be with him and her other loved ones who left this world too soon. She is loved by many and many have her love in their hearts forever.

 

A Visitation will be held from 5-7:00 pm on August 18, 2022 at the Porter Funeral Home, Kansas City, Kansas.  Funeral Services will be held at 10:30 am Friday, August 19, 2022 at Stony Point Christian Church, 149 S 78th St., Kansas City, Kansas.  Burial will follow at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, Kansas City, Kansas.

Dear friends ,Kansas City ,Kansas

Little did I know at the time that my working at the greenhouse and meeting Betty would lead to a lifetime friendship. Frank always reminded me of my Dad who left us way too early. We shared the good and not so good times over the years. Larry loved to tell her “that’s not the way we do it in the colonies “. She will always remain our favorite Brit.

My sister Barbara and I Had tickets to visit her in August but Betty said it was too hot so we changed it To September. That was my Aunt. She always wanted everything to be as perfect as possible so she could make our time special. Just being with her was special enough. I loved her so much. Aunt Betty was my mom Daphne’s baby sister.They both married American’s and moved here. She looked so much like my mom except she always had a smile on her face. She told me one year that when my mom was alive she called her almost every day and she missed that so much. So since that moment I was the one who called her.we had some wonderful conversations. Though her family here will miss her terribly we know she’s with uncle Frank,her family and our Lord. I will continue to speak to her every day and see her in my dreams.

Aunt Betty was our father Victors youngest sister and always held a special place in his heart. H e loved talking to her on the phone and reminiscing about their childhood at their castle on the hill. Whenever i visited Framlingham, I always made sure i found some new souvenir, card or memorabilia from Framlingham or the Castle to send to her, she loved to have them. We may not have seen her as much as we would have liked to, but the times we did were always so special, we all have such wonder,happy memories of her and those times we were together. Aunt Betty , we will always remember your beautiful smile, your laughter ,your kindness you truly were a very special lady. Love from her nieces Shirley , Maureen and our families.
