Betty Sue lived across the street from us in Little Rock for twenty years. Betty Sue was a good friend and a good neighbor. When she moved to Dumas, it left a void in our neighborhood. GOD BLESS Betty Sue and her family at this time. Richard and Connie Key

My sincere condolences to Betty Sue's Family. She was my boss twice. I had a school in New Jersey, and she went with me the weekend before to show me New York, It was a fun trip, that I have always remembered. She was a good boss and a good person. She laughed easily and often. RIP! Sweet Lady! Marty Gassaway

I remember Betty Sue and Jack together when they visited us in Crossett. They purchased ice And lots of cold drinks to put in a galvanized tub. We had a great picnic that day. I’m sure Jack and her are together again. Rest In Peace. Love you.
