Her journey began on October 28, 1938 in a little ole town called Saint Paul’s, NC. Betty was kind and welcoming to every person she encountered and never met a stranger. She was always up for an adventure and her favorite place to visit was the mountains, especially Cherokee. She loved to read her bible, praying for and with others, spending time with family, laughing and always wearing a smile on her face. She was a loving and very caring person. Always thinking of others first. “To know her was to love her.” Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life.
