With her love of creating, especially with any kind of sewing or craft needle, Betty used her creativity and skills to produce beautiful, unique clothing and textile creations.
Her love of exploration combined with many years as a military spouse led her to live and travel extensively throughout Europe and the United States, including Hawaii. Following her return to Danville, Betty discovered new interests in civics and community service. She was actively involved in the Danville Women’s Club, The Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Boyle County Republican Party.
