She was known as the family computer expert, always fixing family and friend's computers. She loved to sew, quilt and crochet in her Hobby She-Shed that she called "GRANNYLAND". She loved to travel and even coordinated Bus Travel plans for her Riverside Baptist Church Senior's group, the Reflections. She spent years on her family's Geneology Research. Betty thoroughly enjoyed her line dancing class called the "YaYas". Her heart's pride and joy was being the Best Granny Ever for her family. She had a profound love for all children.
