She attended Arroll Church at an early age and was saved at a Dewayne Friend Tent Crusade shortly after marriage. While raising her children, she was a Sunday School teacher at the Nazarene Church and attended church all her life until she went to the Nursing Home.
Of all the jobs she had in her life, her favorite job was Liberty High School as Supervisor Cook over the kitchen until she retired. She loved being with the students making sure they had plenty to eat and seeing her grandkids every day at school.
She loved people and spending time with friends just talking and laughing. She had a big heart to help others. She also loved working outside in her yard taking care of her flowers. However, her very best times were those spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren playing games.
Betty will be sorely missed, but we all look forward to celebrating with her in eternity with her saved family and friends. Her prayer was for you to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.Funeral services were held at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, November 5, 2020, at Yarber Mortuary, Mountain View, Missouri with Pastor Danny Marshall officiating.  Visitation was held Wednesday evening from 6-8:00 p.m., also at the funeral home.  Interment was in Greenlawn Cemetery, Mountain View, Missouri.  Memorials may be sent to the Residents Activity Fund at Mountain View Healthcare.
