She married Orval Unruh on September 5, 1948. They lived in Fairview, Isabella, Southard, Hitchcock and Okeene. Four daughters were born to this marriage. Betty was a mother and homemaker for many years. When her girls were all in school, she worked at Buchanans, 5 Ms and Schalmo Assisted Living. She loved her flowers! Working her flowerbeds was her pastime during her retirement years. She and dad enjoyed traveling to Colorado and south Texas. When they stopped traveling, she devoted her extra time to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved cooking for her family and taught her granddaughters her many cooking skills and recipes. We have had friends remark that what they remember most about her was her elegant, beautiful smile.
