Betty was a 1939 graduate of Wiley High School. She was active in her bridge club, St. Patrick’s Mother’s Club (Treasurer) and the Elks in Terre Haute before the family moved to Lafayette, Indiana, in 1962.

Upon her return to Terre Haute in 1978 after Owen’s retirement, she was a member of Sycamore Country Club and volunteered with the St. Patrick’s Soup Kitchen.
