Betty went to school in San Jose, CA graduating from Camden High School in June 1973. It was there that she met her husband, Michael, who she married December 1, 1973. She made many sacrifices for her family, who she loved infinitely, and they always remained her main focus.
Most of her happiest moments were spent with her family. She worked a variety of jobs including Orowheat Bread as a driver and Alpha Beta grocery stores as a clerk. It was there where she shared her joy and great sense of humor with others in the community.
