Betty House

February 27, 1931 — June 16, 2021

She loved spoiling and caring for her grandchildren and spending time with her siblings and other relatives. She enjoyed listening to country and gospel music, being outdoors, gardening, flowers, and watching comedy shows. She had such a sense of humor!
