Betty Jean Cason
April 19, 1934 – September 6, 2022

Betty Jean (Porter) Cason was known by her family and friends as Betty, Jean, Moma, Nan,
Nana, and Mrs. Cason. She loved being a Christian, and most of all, she loved her family and
friends. She was a person you could always depend on to welcome you with open arms, a kind
word, and definitely a prayer with some anointing oil.

Betty Jean (Porter) Cason was born on April 19, 1934, in Shreveport, LA, to Emma Gray
Huggins Mackey and Wherlen Porter. She grew up in Shreveport, LA, and became a Christian
of the Catholic faith at an early age. She attended school and graduated from Booker T.
Washington High School. Betty worked for Shreveport Western Electric for over 30 years before
retiring. She has been a devoted Catholic Christian member of Our Lady of the Blessed
Sacrament and Sacred Hearts Church of Shreveport, Louisiana. After relocating to Texas, she
became a faithful member of St. Gabriel the Archangel Church of McKinney, TX, until her
transition to the Lord on September 6, 2022.

Betty entered a union of marriage to Vernon Cason Sr., and four children were born to their
union. Three sons, Vernon Jr. (Sonny), Allan (Baba), Patrick, and one daughter, Lesha. She
also raised her first grandchild, Caronda, as her own.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Lara and Sammie, her mother Emma
and father Wherlen, her beloved son Vernon, Jr. (Sonny), and two grand fur babies, Jessie and

Betty leaves to carry on her legacy and cherish her memories, one brother, Daryl Porter (Los
Angeles, CA); two sons and one daughter, Allan (Baba)Cason (Sandra) of Rockwall, TX, Patrick
Cason (Denise) of Plano, TX, Lesha Cason of McKinney, TX; eight grandchildren, Caronda
Martin (Darius) of Plano, TX, Adonis Davidson of Shreveport, LA, Crystal Bryant of Fate, TX,
Adrian Cason (Jamie) of McKinney, TX, Cody Cason (Nelly) of Mansfield, TX, Collin Cason of
Houston, TX, Ashton Cason of Sherman, TX, Austin Cason of Dallas, TX; ten great
grandchildren, Jaylene Bryant, Kelbi Hall, Aidan, Adilyn, and Addisyn Davidson, Olivia and
Noah Cason, Kyle Cason, Casey and Nia Cason; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and
friends; and two special caregivers, Carrie Gamble and Carolyn Atkins.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location.

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
