In her earlier years Betty worked at Western Printing Company. She was a fabulous cook and having meals ready at the late hours for her family on the farm was just one of the many ways she showed her love and commitment. She loved sweet treats and had an extra passion for ice cream. Betty also enjoyed sewing, studying her bible, and watching Charles Stanley. She supported Shiloh Christian Ranch and was an auxiliary member of the Perry VFW. Betty came to know the Lord and was saved in the summer of 2001 at the young age of 70! She was a living testimony that hope and salvation is available to all no matter the path or the age. John 3:16
