Betty was a wonderful sister. She will be missed by all. She was always happy, funny, and really enjoyed listening to country music. Betty always enjoyed spending time with your brothers and sisters. She enjoyed teasing them about who was mom's favorite growing up as kids. But she knew our mom had no favorites, and loved each kid the same. She loved to cook, and always teased us about fried okra and banana pudding; two of her favorite dishes. Her laughter and smile will be missed. RIP - Betty; Love Henry, Judy, PeeWee, and Buck.

I remember Betty and my mom standing at the fence between our houses talking for what seemed like hours on end. Betty had the sweetest personality.
