Betty was a devoted member of Community Baptist Church. She found immense peace and solace through her involvement in church activities. Betty is remembered by those who knew her as a warm-hearted person who had a positive outlook on life and enjoyed caring for the children. Betty worked at Mary Jo’s Cloth Store for over 30 years and loved every minute of it.
