After retiring from the U.S. Army, Bettye and Henry moved back to Louisville, MS where she joyfully served as the Food Service Coordinator of the First Baptist Church for over 10 years. She was known far and wide for her caramel and coconut cakes, and her home was always open to friends and family. She is preceded in death by her husband, Lt. Colonel (ret.) Henry McGee and her parents, Bruner and Henry Davis. She is survived by her children-- Dr. Shawn Campbell of Lexington, KY and Bill (Angie) McGee of Louisville, MS; and by her grandchildren-- Mason McGee of Slidell, LA; Hayden McGee of Louisville, MS; Kathryn (Jake) Capan of Lexington, KY; and Cason Campbell of Lexington, KY.
