Betty graduated from Williamson High in Williamson, West Virginia in 1956.  She worked for D.A.B. for forty one and a half years and after retiring, she worked for Wal-Mart for ten years.  Betty enjoyed her dog Bella, watching westerns, going out with the “Wal-Mart Girls”, cookouts, garage sales and shopping. All who knew and loved Betty will miss her.
