In Loving Memory of Bettyann Byrd Galsco

July 7, 1960 - March 21, 2019

Bettyann Byrd Glasco was born July 26, 1960, in Los Angeles, California to Rosa Byrd and Henry Byrd; she was the sixth of six children. Bettyann accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized.

Bettyann received her education in the Los Angeles Unified School District, attending Lincoln Road Elementary, Markham Middle School, and Jordan High School. As a young girl she loved making money, she cleaned, braided hair, and babysat. She stayed dressed and wore her jewelry.

Bettyann united with Shilo Missionary Baptist under the leader of Reverend Armor, and Deacon Lockett.

Bettyann met Phillip Glasco in Watts, CA. They were immediately married and they had a beautiful son Phillip Glasco Jr., Betty also had a son Melvin Dale Bowers Jr., and a daughter Bertreasa Holmes.

Bettyann loved life, being around her family and friends. She also loved music. She was a beautiful loving woman that shared so much love with the people around her. If you called her no matter what the situation, she was there. She would always have little jokes and sayings whenever you saw her; one thing she would always tell her son Melvin is: "I got my eye on you," LOL. Bettyann loved her children, grandchildren, family, friends, and so many others.

Bettyann was preceded in death by her parents Rosa and Henry Byrd, siblings: Daisy, Fredamay, Albert, Jerry, and Alice Fay.

She leaves to cherish her memories, husband Phillip Glasco, sons Melvin Bowers Jr., and Phillip Glasco Jr., daughter Bertreasa Holmes, grandchildren: Sha"dale Bowers, Melvin Bowers Jr. III, Nia'h Bowers, Malik Bowers, Klo'e Bowers, London Bowers, Xavier Russell, Hassan Russell, and Brooklyn Glasco; nieces Shawn Hilt, and Linda HiltGilliam. She also leaves a host of family and friends.
