Betty Alexander

The SBRM family remembers the life and legacy of Betty Alexander, who passed away on Tuesday.  Her 93 years were marked by a deep love of Jesus and the men and women we serve.  Our Alexander Learning Center is so named because of Betty’s tireless work as a pioneer literacy tutor during its formative years.  The treatment capacity of our Bethel House women’s recovery program was doubled thanks to her and Bill’s leadership as Co-Chairs of our New Beginnings campaign.  In addition to these recognizable efforts are countless hours of prayer, care, service and devotion that are known only to God.  As much as she may be missed, we rejoice that among those welcoming her into her new home are hundreds, if not thousands, of previously unknown souls she touched through her years of service through the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.
