    Bettie, a long-time friend from an area of the county where many of my family was from. Having grown up somewhat in Perryhawkin I guess we probably got to know Bettie trough the Perryhawkin Church. Over the years my Dad, Hargis Hickman drove the school bus she rode.
    Her grandmother, Sarah Miller and my Great Grandmother were sisters, so of course there is a family connection as well.
    It was alway a pleasure to talk with Bettie. She was one of the most pleasant ladies to speak and chat with. Lots of interest in our community.
    When my wife and I, Dorothy, became involved with Perryhawkin Christian Church we became a bit more acquainted and enjoy several visit at her family home. She will certainly missed in the Community and especially the church. RIP Dear Bettie

    I would like to acknowledge my sorrow in hearing about the passing of Betty. She was a one of a kind person. Very energetic and full of life and love of the outdoors and animals and family. She always spoke highly of her family. It was a pleasure to know her.
