Elizabeth “Betty” Arthur Clements, 82, of Greenville, South Carolina, passed away Tuesday May 29, 2018. Born in Newton, Maryland, on July 12, 1935, to parents W. Albert and Virginia Hunt Arthur, she was raised in nearby Bedford. Betty relocated with her family to Tenafly, New Jersey, where she graduated from Tenafly High School.  After receiving a degree from Keuka College, she married James J. Bayley and relocated to upstate New York. In the wooded suburbs of Rochester she lovingly raised her two boys.

Her later years were spent in Dallas, Texas, where she enjoyed over 30 years in a successful career as a high producing residential realtor. She was an active member of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church where she served as an elder and was a member of the Martha Circle.  She was one of the founding members of the Singles’ group and was very active in it.  Betty enjoyed entertaining her circle and the singles and is especially remembered for her singles’ New Year’s parties.  She also volunteered at the Network of Community Ministries and other organizations in the community. She always maintained her wonderful sense of humor through her final years battling Alzheimer’s disease.

Betty is survived by her two sons, Mark Bayley of West Hills, California, and Bradford Bayley of Santa Barbara, California; two grandchildren, Brittany Scott of Castaic, California, and James Bayley of Santa Barbara, California; brother, Bradford H. Arthur of Greenfield, Indiana, and sister, Susan Arthur Seidel of Greenville, South Carolina.

A Celebration of Life will take place at 11:00 AM on Saturday June 9, 2018, at First Presbyterian Church, 510 E. Curtis St., Simpsonville, South Carolina 29681. Pastor Cassandra Wolfe Jackson will officiate.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, 3901 North Star Rd., Richardson, TX 75082, or Interfaith Housing Coalition, 5600 Ross Ave., Dallas, TX 75206.

The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks to The Haven in the Village at Chanticleer who gave such tender loving care to Betty in her final 2½ years.
