Betty had 3 more children from 1963 to 1969. Betty was a homemaker who had many talents, gardening, canning, sewing, furniture upholstery, and carpentry skills. She cared for her husband and children the best she could with those abilities. She instilled her faith in God to her children.

In the 1990's she went to work for Salvation Army Thrift Store in Oroville, and worked there until her retirement in the early 2000's. She enjoyed trips to see her family in Las Vegas, and made several trips to Oklahoma to visit family.

She was very active in taking care of her yard after her husband passed away and enjoyed her rose garden, and loved having her two beloved dogs Walter and Gracie by her side.
