Following retirement she continued working part-time for the school district for an additional 10 years. She also enjoyed her United Methodist Women's group and her life-long United Methodist Church membership. In 1959 Betty married Lyle James (Jim) Ault and they had two children, Stephen Wayne and Suza Leigh. Betty and Jim later divorced. Betty's children were forever her love and priority and when her granddaughter Nicole Lynn was born Betty's life was enhanced many times over. She often referred to Nicole as the light of her life. Betty was never without a beloved, rescued cat and always entertained and loved the critter choices made by her children. Betty is predeceased by her parents, her sister Rosemary Cook, and her brothers Rolland Marcellus and Ralph Marcellus. She is survived by family who will miss her forever, son Stephen (Nancy), daughter Suza (Suzanne), granddaughter Nicole, and a special nephew Michael Hall.
