BETTY GREEN Obituary
July 22, 1937 - April 13, 2017 EDMOND Betty R Green, 79, Edmond, OK, passed away April 13, 2017, with her children by her side. Betty, a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, is survived by her son, Van (Wendy) Green; daughter, Lynn (Richard) Horton; brother, Charles Horton; grandchildren, Cacey, Rachel, Haley, Mandy, and Michael; and beloved great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. As Betty's family and friends visited during her final days, stories and laughter about a life well lived were told over and over again. From childhood escapades with siblings, to juggling marriage, children and a professional career, to a retirement filled with world travel, friends and family, everyone who knew her recognized she was living life to its fullest. Known for her quick wit and upbeat attitude, she embraced life and the journey it offered. She leaves a legacy of having taught family and friends the importance of being kind, supportive and loving, the rewards of curiosity and adventure, and most importantly, the joy that comes from finding a partner to share life with just as she did for 57 years of marriage to Ray. Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Benny Ray Green; her parents, Leonard R. & Agnes Rainwater Horton; and her siblings, L.R. Horton and Yvonne Harrell. The family would like to thank her caregivers and to especially thank her many friends in Oklahoma and Georgia who were so supportive. You were a blessing to Betty and her family. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Hope Center in Edmond, OK.
