Betty was born to Lorraine Julia D'Anna (King) Herrera and Ralph Conrad Herrera, Sr. in San Jose, California.

She had two children, Teodolo Conrado Herrera Arroyo (July 17, 1959) with Robert Arroyo. They gave up this child for adoption and he was adopted by Floyd and Teresa Glica at which time he was named James Stanley Glica.

Betty then married Angel Arroyo, Robert's brother and had Lorraine Marie Arroyo (December 1, 1966).

She took on the responsibility for her nephews, Kelly and Scott Herrera, along the way. She was also the guardian for Henry.

Betty was a quiet woman with a strong personality. She worked as a practical nurse for a time. Interestingly, her mother and granddaughter both worked in the same capacity.

Betty died at 50 years old from complications of diabetes.
