Peanut married her soul mate, Joe Dan Grimes, 50 years ago at the Plant Church on December 9, 1972. He said she was beautiful and full of life when they married and that never changed. Together they raised four children and many bonus children. Peanut had an open door when it came to people in need. She was loving, sassy and a little loud, but her family was her pride and joy. No matter what they went through at times, she may have shown some tough love, but love them she did with all her heart. Some say she was quite a storyteller. She was loved by many and will be missed by her family and friends. Rest in love Betty Elaine "Peanut" Grimes, we love you.
