She spent her adult life working in accounting with multiple auto dealerships, finally retiring in 2011 from Texas Hobby Auto Auction.

She is preceded in death by her infant daughter, Patsy Ruth; husband, Bill Averitt; mother, Ruth Jones; step-father, W.A. Jones; father, Thomas Deisch; brothers, Tommy, Robert and James Earl Deisch.

Betty is lovingly survived by son, Joe Stanton and wife Donna; grandsons, Dustin and Hunter Stanton. Also left to cherish her memory are her sister, Nancy Norman and husband Freddy; sister-in-law, Teresa Deisch along with many nieces, nephews, and a host of other family members and friends.

Dear Ms. Betty was a wonderful lady. I spent a lot of time with her at Texas Hobby back in the day - I was a check signed and I think she talked to me about every check I signed - always a good laugh with her. Another great memory was her hair —- it was always perfect. She was a beautiful woman and I’m grateful to have had her in my life.

Miss Betty as we all at the Auto Auction affectionately called her, was an amazing women she was very quick wit and was very funny. She never met a stranger and we always were aware when she was having her next garage sale. We would have pot lucks and I swear she had brought her kitchen there was never not enough food from miss Betty, When she retired she was really missed, I cant imagine for her family. Miss Betty always talked about her son Joey and daughter in law she was always thankful for their love of her. Miss Betty always spoke about what each of her grand children were doing in that point of time they were her jewels.
