Betty Lou Matthews, of Springfield, Tennessee, passed away on March 9, 2024, at her home. Born July 10, 1941, in Westmoreland, Tennessee, she was the daughter of the late Claude Frances Webb and Bessie Perdue Webb.  Betty was a dedicated homemaker whose life centered around her children and grandchildren.

Betty is survived by her beloved family including her daughters Kathy (Danny) Taylor and Dottie Parr; sons Darryl (Charlotte) Matthews, Dwayne (Jedonne) Matthews, and Kevin (Tracey) Matthews; as well as 17 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren.
