    We are saddened to recently learn of Betty’s death. Although, it has been several years since we visited, we do have fond memories Betty, Uncle Hilton and Aunt Mintie. Our mother, Lavinia “Irene” Cowherd Nichols was Betty’s first cousin and recently predeceased her in May, 2010. Our hope is that one day we will all be reunited. May God bless and provide comfort to each heart.

    My grandmother (Laura) was Mint’s sister. I grew up in Texas but regularly made the trip back to Tenn. to go with (when I was younger) or take Nanny & Pa to see everyone. We always stayed with Hilton, Mint & Betty. I remember the really, really early morning smell of the enormous country breakfast they would make. The beautiful things they collected, that by the way, I had to constantly keep my son away from. Sleeping in the camper in the front yard. And I remember how much I missed Nanny when she went to stay and help Betty when Mint got sick. Nanny was deeply devoted to Mint & Betty. Betty was funny & you always knew what she was thinking. Rest in peace, Betty & say hello to Nanny & Pa.

    Betty was a fascinating person! I remember years ago how she and her parents, Mintie and Hilton, were always involved in something new: raising chinchillas, or large goldfish. They were never afraid to take up roots and try a new place. Of course, as a small child, I found this amazing.They once gave me a large goldfish that I promptly named Hilton.
    As I grew up, I came to appreciate Betty’s quick mind. She was absolutely masterful at chasing down family tree materials, and the entire extended family owes her our gratitude for seeing that we are all remembered.
    The last ten years or so, Betty maintained touch regularly, to check on my mother’s health. It will be so strange not to have those phone calls. I’m ashamed to say that I am not much of a phone caller myself, and regret now that we seldom called Betty. I am resolved to do better, so Betty, your memory will last a long time with me–every time I make a call to a friend or relative that I should have made before. May you rest in peace, and I hope that your lovely dog Lady was among the first to greet you as you passed over.
    Love, Linda DeJongh
