Betty was baptized into the Blair Branch Old Regular Baptist Church in April of 1982. She worked as a cook
for many years in the Letcher County School System and was admired by her co-workers for her dedication and
good work ethic. A precious mom that loved her family and always believed that they came first. She loved
giving and expected nothing in return. She had that unique special touch in preparing a home cooked meal and
making sure everyone was taken care of at the dinner table. She loved shopping with her close friends and
finding that bargain or sale item. Her smile and warm heart will be missed by all. God blessed our mom in
many ways prior to her passing. On that glorious day in September our loving mother, one of Heavens rare
jewels, was taken by an angel to the ever lasting Land of Glory.
We miss you Mom!!
