Obituary

Betty Jean Elizabeth Gaskin was born on December 19, 1942, in Gainesville, Florida, to Isaiah and Sarah Gaskin, who preceded her in death.

She accepted Christ at an early age, at Atlas AME Church. As a young child, she attended A.L. Mabane School and graduated from Gainesville High School.

She entered into holy matrimony on February 3, 1962, with William M. Brazil, in Monteocha, Florida. From this union, Mother Betty gave birth to five children. In 1970, Betty relocated to South Florida with her family. As a young woman, Mother Brazil was trained as a nursing assistant at Lindsey Hopkins Trade School and worked in her field as a nursing assistant at the Veterans Hospital.

Mother Brazil served Jesus faithfully as a choir director and a member, an usher, and as a church mother to her local and district church. Mother Brazil had a big heart and was very generous; she loved God’s people and served them in the spirit of excellence.

Mother Brazil is survived by her: husband, Elder William Brazil; sons, Franklin Gaskin, Derek Brazil (Tashanika), Elvis Brazil (Alisha), Karen Brazil-Singleton (Donald), and Marcus Brazil (Kawanda); grandchildren, Josh Arjona, Kendal Hill, Elvia Brazil, Symone Royal, Marcus Brazil, Marquez Brazil, Kimora Brazil, Armani Brazil, and Derek Brazil, Jr.; adopted children in Christ, Eshmial Smith, Ashanti Alderman, Kerry Johnson, Proctor Boone, and Edward Green; maternal aunt, Mary Ross; paternal uncle, Junior Gaskin; brothers, Hamp Gaskin (Elvira), Roscoe Gaskin (Rose), Ernest Gaskin (Maxine), and Clarence Gaskin (Josephine); sisters, Mae Fowler (Julius) and Geraldine Brantley; brothers-in-law, Isaiah Brazil (Cenis), James Brazil; sisters-in-law, Elzade Cromarty and Rene Brazil; and a host of nieces, nephews, and godchildren.
