Obituary

Ms. Betty Louise (Fishburne) Behling, daughter of the late Isaac & Betsy Fishburne, was born December 19, 1943, in Walterboro, South Carolina.  As a youth, she was educated in the public schools of Colleton County and graduated Colleton High School class of 1962.  Upon her graduation, Betty relocated to New York to begin her own life. First moving to Harlem, then to the suburbs on Long Island; she moved to the town of North Babylon where she was gainfully employed with the phone company for over thirty years.  Settling in, this would be the place that she would call home; not only for her but for her children and family as well.  As time passed, she would go on to meet her life’s partner, the late, Mr. William “Bill” Coffee.  Having a newfound love, and after retiring in 1998; Betty and Bill enjoyed each other and traveling. 

Affectionately called Louise, by her “Down South Family”:  she was known to be an avid collector of over three hundred dolls.  She was an exemplary mother who gave abundantly to her family.  To know her was not only to love her but was to cherish her. 

On Tuesday: March 15, 2022, while surrounded by her loving children who cared for her until the end; Betty traded time for eternity and gained her heavenly wings. Preceding her in death along with her parents; are, three sisters, Vernell, Henrietta, and Nettie and one brother, Herbert.  Left to reflect on the essence of this virtuous woman are son, Kevin Behling of the home: daughter, Kristle Behling of Maryland: siblings, Alexander (Edna) Wright and Mary Singleton both of Walterboro, SC, and Reverend Nathaniel (Ann Lynn) Fishburne of Ridgeland, SC: sister-in-law, Eva Nell Fishburne of Walterboro, SC: brother-in-law, Diral Miller of Walterboro, SC: along with a host of numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.  

On behalf of this family, we encourage you to share in expressions of love as well as continue to pray with and for them, as they prepare to celebrate one whom they love.
