Betty loved life and being around people. In her younger years she was a car hop at a popular drive in. She moved to Florida in 1984 and worked building transformers for the military. Betty then began working at a daycare until 2007 where her passion for children and her exemplary childcare skills were evident and appreciated. In her spare time, she enjoyed collecting angels, listening to music and reading, especially romance, as she was a hopeless romantic herself. She loved Alabama football and, above all, her family. She was a loving mother, grandmother and friend to all.
