She was born to the late Edgar and Hester Barker on June 30, 1945, in Boone County, West Virginia. Betty grew up playing in the creek and in the woods among the mountains with the best brothers, sisters, and cousins on the planet! She graduated from Sherman High School in 1962 and moved to Columbus, Ohio. Betty worked at Kroger for many years and made many friends and memories while working there. She loved the outdoors and gardening and spent most of her days working in the yard. She was always caring for stray animals. A beautiful soul who never met a stranger, Betty could make anyone feel loved. She loved dancing and going to concerts to see Elvis and Tom Jones, playing cards with her friends, and visiting family. She was a master at learning crafts. Nothing was too hard for her to learn, except tatting!
