Professionally, Betty worked from 1952 to 1983 as a switch board operator, retiring from Southwestern Bell Telephone/AT&T.

Betty loved to spend time outdoors. Whether horseback riding, caring for her flower garden or simply going for a walk, Betty enjoyed being outside. A wonderful baker, Betty made the best casseroles and zucchini bread. Reading, traveling and an occasional visit to the casino to play the slots were a few of Betty’s favorites. Most of all, Betty simply enjoyed spending time with her friends and family.

Betty was an active volunteer with the Telephone Pioneers, sewing pillows for the hospital and also volunteering with the food pantry at the First United Methodist Church.
