So sorry for your loss. She was a great teacher and someone who could keep Bart in line. I didn't realize she had taught that long. PJC lost a great teacher.

PJC class of 1984! I have always had great memories of Ms. Mills. She made learning fun especially about Texas government. Rest in Peace Ms. Mills you were one of the best!

I grew up at Ms. Pauline's Beauty Shop going every Saturday with my 2 aunts until Pauline retired. I remember what a beautiful, intelligent and creative woman Betty was and how much I always admired her.

So sad to hear this. She was my favorite teach at PJC. I changed my major to political science after taking her class. I got to visit with her a few years ago. I was surprised to see her, and nearly broke down in tears as I shared with her that I had been a government teacher for 29 years. She just smiled real big and said, "that's great!" I can still remember the 1st day that I walked into her class. I thought this is my favorite class.
RIP Mrs. Mills, Ken

So sorry to hear about cousin Betty. We have lots of memories of Betty as we all grew up together there on Grove Street. She would always say she would spend the night but she never did, she knew her Dad would be coming home with a load of coal and she would flag him down and ride home. She had a fear of birds and chickens and we tease her a lot. Betty was a very special caring person and we loved her very much. She will be so missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family during this time. We send our love!

Betty was amazing. I came to PJC in 2004...I loved her spunk and so many people told me how awesome she was. We had many conversations over the years and her and Don Kosterman's debates over who had been at PJC the longest were always fun...I will miss her....thoughts are with her family
