Born in Olar, SC, she was a daughter of the late James Alfred “Bubba” Sanders and Stella Catherine Morris Sanders. Betty was a member of Rosemary Baptist Church. In 1970, she received her cosmetology license and after several years developed a shoulder problem which prevented her from doing what she loved; after not being able to work as a cosmetologist full time Betty found a new passion at Connie Maxwell Children’s Home where she worked for almost 16 years as a cottage mother.

Survivors include her son and his wife Brian and Kelli Johnson of Williston; her sister Delores Harris; her brother and his wife William “Bill” and Sarah Sanders; her two grandchildren whom she dearly loved Samuel Walker Johnson and Jillian Paige Johnson; nephews Terry Harris, Jerry Harris, Jimmy Harris, Bobby Harris, Greg Harris and Clay Sanders.

She was preceded in death by a nephew Timothy Sanders.
