In her spare time, she loved to embroider, make quilts, crochet, sew and word search. She always had to be doing something. She was known to most people as “Betty Boop” and it showed she enjoyed it with her collection of Betty Boop items, even clothes. Betty was known for her love of Betty Boop, especially of her family, friends, and co-workers. She loved her family even when they did not always see things eye to eye. She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren when they would come to visit, and she would ask if they wanted to spend the night because she loved to make breakfast for them. A favorite would be bacon, eggs, and blueberry pancakes. Betty is survived by her three children, Deana (Steve) Thompson from Cherokee, OK.
