Heaven just got a lot more interesting because Betty Jane Dangerfield Classen arrived November 30, 2022.  
Those who knew and loved her best will tell you she truly lived this life on her terms and to its fullest!  She loved her family fiercely. They were the single most important thing in her life, followed closely by her love for driving inappropriately fast and playing the slot machines!
She spent her life working with the public. Her first career was at the Navy Base where she worked civil service in the food service division. She spent 18 years there and was well known for her quick smile, willingness to do any job and providing some of the most outstanding catering events the base ever produced! She then opened her own little enterprise known as Mamma D’s which was a small store on Rivers Ave in N Charleston that also served some of the best chilidogs in the south! The last 25 years; however, she found her dream job.  Working with her son at Automaxx, she set her own hours, worked when she wanted, had a company truck (which she drove the wheels off - literally) and was known to all as simply Momma.  She was one of the most compassionate and kindhearted women you would have ever met, always willing to help others, sit with a sick friend or invite others to join her family for the holidays and a meal when they had no family or were far from home.
She was born in Coward SC November 16, 1944. She just celebrated her 78th birthday surrounded by the family she loved. She is proceeded in death by the one true love of her life, her husband, Charles O. Classen, her mom Rachel Christine McCoy Irby and her dad John Cornelius Irby. 
She is survived by her son Johnny (Patricia) Dangerfield of Daniel Island, her daughter Christi Dangerfield Warthan (Scott) of Goose Creek, 6 grandchildren Johnny (Aubrey) Dangerfield of Summerville, Heather Dangerfield of Summerville, Michael (Ashley) Dangerfield of Summerville, Morgen Warthan of Summerville, Bradley LaZar of Charleston, Richard LaZar of Charleston, 5 great grandchildren Blake, Isabelle, Bailey, Madelyn and Oliver as well as a brother Wesley Legrand Evans of Charleston.
Her Funeral Service will be held Monday, December 5, 2022 in the J. Henry Stuhr Inc., Northwoods Chapel, 2180 Greenridge Road at 12:00 pm.  Interment, Carolina Memorial Park. The family will receive friends Sunday, December 4, 2022 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm in J. Henry Stuhr Inc., Northwoods Chapel.
