It was Leroy and Betty's dream to have a large family and God blessed them in this endeavor. She treasured the time she had with all of them. The fuller the house the better. Betty was a beautiful wife and mother. As a domestic engineer, Betty was able to supplement the family income with part-time work which could be done from home. She taught her children by example, to work hard, to always give their best effort, and to be thankful for the opportunities God provided. Together they managed paper routes in the Pixley area for two newspapers, babysat, moved lawns, took in laundry, ironing and cleaned for other families and businesses. They ran an ice cream truck which serviced the surrounding area, as far as Delano. Betty loved crafting. Sewing blankets for family and friends, decorating hangers, making decorative soaps, tending her garden, and canning the harvest. To gift with friends and family, brought her joy. Spending time with Leroy at the Lions Club Bingo night, while working the event, as well as playing Bunco with her besties, were two of her favorite diversions. Betty was a picture of servitude to her family, friends, and community. Betty honored the Lord, her husband and all her legacy, all the days of her life.
