Betty loved the Lord and was a member of Lakeway Baptist Church in Harrison. She courageously battled Alzheimer’s for the last 5 years and remained focused on serving the Lord, even when her memory was failing. Betty always remembered to say blessings and never forgot her favorite songs.

Betty is survived by her husband of 63 years, Weldon; sister-in-law, Mrs. Polly Parker, as well as several nieces and nephews.
