Betty was the third child born and being 10 years younger than her siblings, Donald and Marion, she lived a childhood of having her parents to herself. Betty thoroughly enjoyed being outside helping her dad with any type of ranch work. She graduated high school in 1948 at Simms and was the senior class president. Even with dementia, she remembered her wonderful childhood and friends with a gleam in her eye.
