After graduating from Alexandria High School in 1934 and marrying Jack, she devoted her life to being a wonderful, loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was truly an angel on Earth and will be so in Heaven. She will be sadly missed by all of her family and all who knew her. Betty's family would like to thank the Logan Elm Healthcare Staff and the Berger Hospice for the special loving care they gave Betty in the final years of her life. Granny has passed from this life but she will surely live on in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Betty was a member of the Frankfort Presbyterian Church, and was known for her delicious desserts.
