Alice June (Betty) Ledbetter Obituary

Alice June (Betty) Ledbetter, a long-time resident of Browns Valley, CA, passed away in Santa Rosa, CA on December 14, 2014. She was 88 years old. She was born on April 23, 1926 in Ceres, CA. Her brothers thought the name Alice was too old-fashioned and decided to call her Betty, the name she used throughout her life.

Betty married the love of her life, Roy, and became a mother to his daughter Lois, who was soon joined by daughter Laurie and son Keith. She often said "I don't know why God didn't take me when he took Roy". Everyone who loved her is happy that they are at last reunited.

Betty moved to Sonoma County to be closer to Keith and his family. She spent the last several years living with them and enjoying new experiences, broadening her knowledge of life outside of the Central Valley. She had been saying for many years that she would love to live in Sonoma County. She loved the vineyards, the apple orchards, but most of all she loved the redwood forests where a portion of her ashes will be scattered.

Betty was preceded in death by her husband Roy and daughter Laurie. She is survived by daughter Lois (Ray), and son Keith (Susan). She is also survived by 5 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren and 2 great, great grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held on the 10th of January at the Loma Rica Community Church in Loma Rica. A graveside service to follow at the Peoria Cemetery in Browns Valley. Everyone is welcome to attend.
