She was born April 27, 1931 to Amanda (Lewis) Smith and Keener Smith. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph; and her son, Roger “Murph” Winters; as well as nine siblings.
Betty enjoyed working in her flowers, reading and working puzzles. She also liked feeding hummingbirds and watching the turkeys and deer.
Those left to cherish her memories are her daughter, Kathy Osborne and husband Rick, grandson Allen and LaDonna Osborne and great-grandson, Tyler Colbaugh; her sisters-in-law, one brother-in-law and numerous nieces and nephews.
