Betty touched many hearts during her life by serving for over a decade as the head of Christian Education at First United Methodist Church, New Braunfels, TX before moving to Colorado and being the Executive Assistant to the Fairplay County Commissioners for 11 years and retiring in 2013. She and Dean recently relocated to Olney Springs in the last 6 years and helped many with employment during this time. Together with her husband, Betty raised many head of goats and adopted dogs. Betty was a master seamstress and loved to quilt and do crafts in her free time. She even won a few awards at local county fairs for her quilts and crochet.
