Betty and I were classmates at Luxora for 12 years and were both a part of the graduating class at LHS in 1966. She was always a joy to be around and always smiling. Nothing seemed to bother her. One of my favorite classmates. My sympathy to Larry and her children and entire family and her many friends. She will be missed by all who knew her. RIP my friend and classmate.

My deepest sympathy to the family. I had the honor of working with Betty for 12yrs at OPD and we became very good friends,I can truly say that we were family. After moving to Alabama I could always call Betty and get the answer that I needed which was always the truth regardless of what I wanted to hear. I attended a funeral in March and had no idea who grabbed me from behind until I heard that all to familiar voice say Gloria Jean,we held each other so tight and took pictures ❤ I am going to miss you my buddy,my friend.
