On October 24, 1964, she married Verlyn L. “Gib” Gibson Sr. and he preceded her in death April 14, 2011. She was also preceded in death by a grandson, Justin Smith; two sisters and brothers-in-law, Ernestine and Bill Sievers and Jackie and Leo Blankenship.

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.

Our beloved mother, grandmother, and sister deserves a beautiful tribute. However, we appreciate in this unknown time with the COVID-19 pandemic that attending a service may not be in your best health interest.
