Memories & Candles
All of my memories of Betty are of her with a huge smile and the happiest attitude. Every morning would start with a big "GOOD MORNING" along with a big beautiful smile. Often we would get a small sample of her singing through the halls as she would walk by....Betty always added a special spark to the room. She will be missed. I am so glad that I was able to have met such a wonderful lady. My thoughts are with her family.

I met Betty when I went to work at Gayley -N- Lord (formally Burlington Ind.) in Caroleen. She was so nice to me. She always had a beautiful smile. She let me know that she was a friend of my husband's aunt....Joan Hawkins Hollifield. Joan passed away just 8 days before Betty. I know they are in Heaven laughing and having a grand time together again. Chase High School class of 1965 has lost 2 beautiful and classey ladies.

Betty was the sweetest person I knew when I worked with her at cone jacquard in the lab. I know how u all fill because I lost my mother in 2011. My mother lost the battle with breast cancer after a year of fighting it. We seem to be loosing lots of people from the plant lately we lost Eddie Hill the last week of December to cancer, also we lost a Guy named Thomas in the weave-room to kidney

Betty was fun, feisty and glamorous! We all loved her at Cone for her sweet, compassionate nature combined with a wicked sense of humor!
My sympathies to her family because she was a special lady.
