Betty was the administrative and financial officer of the business until retiring just two years ago in 2016. As important as the family business was to Betty, nothing was more important than the love and life of her family.

Gordon, Sr. on September 1, 1994; her three brothers: Ellsworth, Robert and Chester Wallace; and two sisters: Grace Ayers and Alice Mae Wallace.

A funeral service to celebrate her life will be held at 4 p.m., immediately following the visitation with Pastor Tom Bonomo, officiating.
