Betty Wellborn Estes, 89, of Columbia (formerly of West Columbia) passed away on December 3, 2019.
She donated her body to the USC School of Medicine. At her request, there was no visitation or service held for her.
She was the daughter of the late William Crawford Wellborn and Adelle Areheart Wellborn. She retired from the US Government (HUD) and the SC State Government (DHEC). She was formerly a member of Mt. Tabor Lutheran Church and Northside Baptist Church. She was presently a member of Riverland Hills Baptist Church. For 29 years, she was a Volunteer at Baptist Medical Center. She was very involved with the Seven Oaks Senior Adult activities (the Lunch Bunch.)
She loved to do crafts, needlework, word puzzles and anything to interact with others because she was a people person. Music was one of the joys of her life. She was a great Atlanta Braves and USC Gamecock fan.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Christie and Kenny Watts of West Columbia; her brother William C. (Bill) Wellborn (Geraldine) of Lexington. She is survived by many other relatives. She was pre-deceased by her brother, Roy H. Wellborn and her nephew, Sam Wellborn, both of Lexington.
