She is preceded in death by her parents, and sisters Billie Ruth, Aline, JoAnn, and Barbara.
Having a love for lighthouses, the beach and seagulls, Betty’s ashes will be scattered by loved ones at Cape Henry, VA in honor of her love for all things seaside.
A special thank you to the nurses and staff of Sherwood Nursing and Rehabilitation and Kindred Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests to please send donations to St. Jude’s in her honor.
