Betty was a dedicated wife and mother. She treasured her family and deeply cherished her role as a grandmother.

Betty was a gracious host, a fabulous, self-taught southern cook and an avid bridge player. She loved to travel, had a keen sense of style and fashion, and spoke with the most elegant southern accent ever heard.

She was a wonderful friend to many and a longtime member of the Methodist Church.

Her legacy, spirit, and beautiful memory will live on in the hearts of all that knew and loved her.

A funeral service will be held Friday November 3rd at 11 am at Fox and Weeks Hodgson Chapel.



We are both so sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother and wife. It is so very hard to imagine life without her. Blessings and hugs.
