My grandma and Maw Cooper (Bettye's mom) were best friends and lived down the street from each other. They drank coffee together so growing up I spent a lot of time at Maw Cooper's house. Mrs. Bettye would come in and out a lot and she was always smiling and had such a kind disposition. I remember one time I got sick at school and she checked me out and let me stay with her at Cleco until my mom got back home. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out.
Love and Prayers!

Such an adorable lady, inside and out! Bettye always had something positive to say, and a smile on her face. It would be difficult to imagine her without a smile. Our love and thoughts reach out to her family as she leaves her frail earthly body, and enters her long sought after home in heaven! Our thoughts and prayers are lifting her family and friends as they send her home.
Go with God, Bettye!
Much Love, Colby and Carey Ann Shoemake
