    What can you say about the best person you have ever known? She has always been the rock of our family. We have always had her there and now; with her guidance, we are prepared to move forward on our own journey. She will be remembered as our Aunt Boop, but to the thousands of lives she has touched with her singular and precious gift of caring, she will always be Ms. Betty. Always in our Hearts.

    We were so sorry to learn of Betty's passing. She and our late Mother, Mildred Barnett Connor, graduated together from Hendersonville High School in 1946. Betty and Ralph were our neighbors on Hyman Avenue and we were members together at First Baptist Church before we moved to VA in July, 2021. We send our heartfelt thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to her family. Our love, Alton and Lynda
