Betty was born on February 4th, 1934 in Thorn Hill, Tennessee, the daughter of Lafayette and Lula Shockley. She married at the age of 16 to her husband of 55 years, Joe Garrett Dalton. She was a member of Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Franklin, Ohio since the 1960’s.

Betty’s passions in life were sewing, gardening, cooking, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed listening to gospel music and feeding her family. No one left her house with an empty stomach.

She is survived by her son Gary (Judy) Dalton, daughter Sherry (Donnie) Lawson, grandson Zachary Dalton, granddaughters Heather (David) Erdy, Angela Frantz, and Holly (Tim) Shelton, great-granddaughter Mackenzie Frantz, and five great-grandsons, Drew and Dylan Erdy, Reece, Garrett, and Wyatt Shelton, otherwise known as “her little boys”.

I couldn't decide which of my favorite memories of Sis to write about and then I realized that each one of them involved her cooking me food from the time I was a toddler until just a few years ago.
Betty and her Sister's we're the best cooks and the sweetest women I have ever known. I will miss her the rest of my life. I love you.
Your Niece, Pam

I will always cherish the memories of Betty and Garrett at Mount Olive Baptist Church. Also listening to Betty and Sherri sing with great harmony. She always had a smile on her face.
