Betty went to Diamond School and graduated from Oakwood High School in 1966. Over the years, Betty worked at Time-O-Matic, Pleasant Meadows, McLane and Colonial Manor. Betty truly enjoyed sewing/quilting, gardening, crafting, baking and cooking for any army, but most of all spending time with her grandbabies.
Anyone that knew Betty, knew her door was always open, food and a safe place for as long as was needed. She had a love for her cat, Izzy, and for Betty Boop, which she collected for years. Betty was a very proud cancer survivor of nine years. She lived to tell her story and be motivation for others going through tough times.

Betty was one of my first and best friends at Oakwood High. She was a happy person, a lot of fun to know.
