Betty demonstrated strong faith in God and through that shared many friendships in her church and community. She was an active member of Mangham Baptist Church. A list too many to print of cousins and friends that were her partners in crime. An avid gardener who could sit for hours enjoying what nature provided, whether it be hummingbirds, zinnia flowers in her garden or her resident red bird. Throughout the years, she loved baking cookies for ALL. She offered many and received even more.
Pallbearers were David Salsbury, Austin Salsbury, Jamey Folds, Garrett Fold, Clayton Norred and Trey Norred.
