Betty was born October 13, 1946 to Elmer Arvel Ford and May Read Ford in Amarillo. She worked for over 20 years at Western Plateau Elementary School, where she continued to volunteer even after retirement. She was also actively involved in volunteering at the church. She enjoyed being part of the antique car club and traveling with Charles to car shows. She also shared many trips with her sisters and cousins which always brought about many laughs. Betty truly loved the many family trips over the years with her husband, kids and grandkids. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, Mimi, sister, aunt, cousin and dear friend. Her greatest joys were her 5 grandchildren who she loved “to the moon and back”.
