Betty was born April 26, 1931, to Charley and Maggie Ashley in Oplin, Texas. She moved to Loop in 1965 from Denver City.
Betty met and married the love of her life, T.R. Aldridge, on Jan. 20, 1952. He preceded her in death after 52 years of marriage on Nov. 12, 2004.
Betty loved to cook, work jigsaw puzzles, find the word and be in the outdoors. She loved spending time with the family and tending to her grandchildren. You never saw Betty when she didn't have a loving smile on her face. As a couple, they enjoyed going to all the garage sales and flea markets they could get into a day. She has collected Depression-era glass and antiques over the years. Betty's family remembers how she enjoyed sitting there, looking at all the family pictures and watching her hummingbirds. She was very proud of being a NaNa to all her nephews and nieces.
Those left to cherish her memories are two sons: Dennis Ralph Aldridge and wife Gerry of Magdalena, N.M., and Edward Eddie Royce Aldridge and wife Peggy of Brownfield; one daughter: Jacqueline Jackie Smith and husband Timmy of Loop. She was also blessed with six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
The Aldridge family would like to extend a special thank you to Brownfield Rehabilitation Center, Brownfield Regional Hospital, and Dr. Paul Chebib for all your hard work on taking care of our mother.
Family requests that in lieu of flowers that donations be made to Brownfield Rehabilitation Center in Brownfield.
