They married in 1953, moved to Ft Worth for several years then in 1963, they moved to Grand Prairie, still in the same house. Betty received a BA in Library Science from what is now TWU. After graduating, she worked for Longview ISD then after their marriage she worked for the Convair Engineering library (later became Lockheed Martin). Once they moved to Grand Prairie, the city libraries became her focal point. Over the years she was active on the Library Board, the Library Foundation and the Friends of the Grand Prairie Library. For the last many years, she served as President of the Friends of the Grand Prairie Library. Under her guidance, the Friends began to have book sales to raise funds for special library equipment and programs that would supplement budgeted funds. She and Wally loved to travel, seeing as much of the US and Europe as possible. In 1971-72, they had a French foreign exchange student, Nicole, live with them. Nicole became their second daughter and Nicole’s family became a second family. Betty’s other passion was fishing. She and Wally spent untold hours doing just that at their house on Cedar Creek. Many times, Betty would be catching lots of fish and Wally would not get one bite. She is proceeded in death by her parents, Bill and Sarah Hopkins of Texarkana and her sister and brother in law, Mary and Don Fischer, of Arlington, VA. She is survived her husband, Wally Warmack, her daughters, Patricia Evans of Grand Prairie and Nicole Perroud of Lyon, France. Plus, many loving cousins scattered across the US.

She was also a beautiful lady and had a gift that only some people have, she was able to look into the eyes of the person talking to her. She seemed genuinely happy to have a house full of teenagers in her home, and I am sure that I was not the only person that always felt welcomed there. I will remember her big smile and her love for her family.

Growing up with you at FUMC and deciding to become roommates at UT Austin was such a blessing in my life. Betty was such a great cook and kept our freezer stocked with all her great meals! We learned from both sets of frugal parents and good stewards of what God had provided! We stocked our kitchen with our parents and grandparents mixing bowls, cast iron skillet, dishes, and other treasures found at neighborhood garage sales. Betty taught us to shop using our coupons and sticking to our list and budget. We are blessed with the glorious riches of our inheritance in Christ given freely and through the light and love our families provided.
God’s peace, beloved.
