At age 18, her family moved to OKC, where she met her husband, Don, of 58 years. They married on Feb. 19, 1949 and together raised a large family to love and serve the Lord accomplishing one of Betty's most cherished desires. Betty's love extended far beyond her immediate family, as she made opportunities to meet needs in the lives of those around her. Since 1997, she has filled or coordinated the distribution of more than 170,000 shoe box gifts to needy children around the world through the ministry of Operation Christmas Child. She made many cherished friends through this and her other life pursuits running the family business, serving faithfully at Northwest Baptist Church, scrapbooking and miniature collecting clubs and traveling internationally.
