Betty Dickerson Cothran

Sept. 25, 1947 – Nov. 16, 2019

NATCHEZ— Graveside inurnment for Betty Dickerson Cothran, 72, who died Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019, at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans, will be 1 p.m. Monday at the Natchez City Cemetery.   
Arrangements have been entrusted to Ibert’s Mortuary Inc., 1007 Main St., in Franklin, Louisiana.
Betty was born Sept. 25, 1947, in Natchez, the daughter of Luther Austin Dickerson and Mary Barlow Dickerson.
She was raised and spent her early adult years in Natchez where she volunteered as a candy-striper at Jefferson Davis Hospital. Later in life, she moved to Gun Town and worked as a caregiver. In 2005, she moved to Franklin, Louisiana, to be near her family.
Betty was a baptized Christian who loved the Lord and truly had Jesus in her heart. She loved pearls for the simple fact that she looked forward to the day when she would gaze upon the Pearly Gates of Heaven and be welcomed into everlasting life.
She was preceded in death by her parents and one sister, Margaret D. Aucoin.
Those she leaves to cherish her memory include her four siblings, Mary D. Foster, Carl B. Dickerson, Katherine D. DeFeo and husband, George, and Raymond L. Dickerson; her caregiver and niece, Janie Foster; and a number of nieces and nephews.
Family and friends may view the obituary and express their condolences online by visiting iberts.com.
