Betty was the proud daughter of the late Rev. Grady Lee Cook and Annice Christine Cook. If you knew Betty, you would know she was a proud big sister. She started most conversations with “I am the oldest of ten.” Betty was a “glass is half full” type of person. She loved life, her family, and her friends. She had a wanderlust as well. She scratched that itch by becoming a motorhome tour guide in the later years of her working life. She toured all 50 states, Mexico, and Canada. She was an amazing mother and grandmother. Her grandchildren often had summer vacations at Camp Singleton where they played in the lake, pool, hot tub, on the tractor, lawn mowers and golf carts. Betty was a noun and verb. In her children’s homes—you would know you had been Betty’d when your clothes had been washed, your room had been tidied and your dishes all cleaned without you even knowing they were dirty yet. She was a proud ambassador for Christ. As a preacher’s daughter, she had a love for God and knew her God is a very good God. Even in her days battling Alzheimer’s she was a faithful church goer and took the time to pray for and with the many who cared for and served her. Betty will be missed by her family and friends. Truly heaven welcomed an angel home on Nov. 22, 2021.
