Betty taught school for many years and loved every bit of it. She always enjoyed teaching children and watching them grow throughout the years. She taught science at Tahlequah and then transferred to Fort Gibson Public Schools where she eventually retired. Through all of those years, she amazingly never missed a day of school. Teaching was her passion and she took great pride in it. She enjoyed seeing former students, although she couldn't always remember their names. She attended and received her Master's in Education from The University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. Besides teaching, She loved reading, she loved to go camping, fishing, do some gardening every now and again, quilt, and watch OU Football. However, her greatest treasures were her family. She went to all of her grandchildren and great grandchildren's sporting events and was their biggest fan. She loved her family dearly and spent every chance she got being around them. Anyone who knew Betty, knew she had to have her morning coffee and possibly another one throughout the day. She will be missed dearly by everyone she leaves behind.
