Betty was born April 13, 1954, in Bainbridge, Ga., the daughter of Albert and Jeanette Nix Weste. She was a graduate of Bainbridge High School, class of 1973.

Betty worked second shift as a ward clerk at Memorial Hospital and Manor for many years and was an amazing caretaker for her Mother, Jeanette. She was known as everybody’s “Aunt Betty,” and was a soft spoken woman with a heart of gold, that loved God and her family.
