For nearly 84 years, she touched and cared for hundreds. She was born 19 Nov 1927, in San Antonio, Texas, to Oscar and Esther Egle. She had two sisters, Barbara Anne and Patricia, and one brother, John. Betty's dearest childhood friends were her cousins, Jeanie and Evelyn Egle.

Family, education and work were important to Betty; she earned her Baccalaureate Degree in 1991, followed by a Graduate Degree from Oklahoma University in 1994, when she was 66 years old. After 30 years, she retired as a GS-12 at Tinker AFB in 1997. Betty moved to San Antonio to care for her Mother, Esther, who lived 101 years.
