She was born October 23, 1931, in Elliott County, Kentucky, to the late Charlie Lee and Dephie Marie Hanshaw Wagoner.

Betty was a member of the Family of God and enjoyed singing gospel hymns. She enjoyed swinging on the front porch, watching Westerns, spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren who had a special place in her heart, laughing for hours and always ready to whip up a meal in no time; some of her favorites were blackberry dumplings and stack cake. When getting her hair done she would always say “Don’t make my hair flat, don’t want to look like a peeled onion”. One of her favorite pets was her poodle, Mimi.
