Betty was an avid lover of the outdoors and nature. She loved watching and feeding the birds and deer that came into her yard. Betty also loved to quilt with her ladies group and made sure no one went away hungry from their visit with her, church or numerous potlucks in the North River community. She had a smile for everyone and a twinkle in her eye that made everyone feel welcome and loved.
