Betty Ann (Richey) Malone
January 26, 1938 - July 24, 2021
Betty Ann (Richey) Malone, age 83, went home to be with the Lord on July 24, 2021 with family by her side.
Betty, the youngest of 6 children, was born January 26, 1938 in Little Rock, AR to the late Leo & Ora Richey.
She was predeceased by her parents; sisters, Joyce & Leona; brothers, Leon & Jimmy; 2 children, Rita & Richard; and husband, Jack.
Betty graduated R.A.Long High School in 1956, then went on to raise a family while working hard for 38 years at Longview Fibre. Aside from her devotion to her family and work, she enjoyed being a member of the Kelso Elks, even being awarded President of the Lady Elks. She loved singing, dancing, and performing skits at the Elks. She enjoyed spending time with her family and her many life long friends.
Waiting to see her again are Betty's 4 children: Robert (Felice) Lamb, of Redding, CA; Ron (Kathy) Lamb, of Longview, WA; Theresa Lien-Hunsucker, of Longview, WA; and Barbie (Jason) Sturdevant, of Kalama, WA. 13 grandchildren: Rob, Dave, Steve, Zac, Teran, Jacob, Ryan, Jesse, Isaac, Joshua, Hannah, Malachi, and Helen. Also, 6 great grandchildren, many nieces, nephews, life long friends, and a loving brother Edwin Richey.
Betty was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman whom we will miss every day. When in doubt, remember her advice to "pull up your boots and keep on going."
A Celebration of Life will be determined at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, family suggests making donations to Longview Community Home Health & Hospice 1035 11th Ave. Longview, WA 98632
