Betty was a teacher at Ocoee Elementary and had a passion for teaching children to read. She was active in her church and loved to travel. In her spare time she enjoyed playing her piano and playing Scrabble with whoever would play with her and fall for her made-up words. She was a wonderful mother who was fiercely protective and loyal to her family. She was a kind and generous woman and she will be missed.
