Betty worked for Celotex Corporation and was awarded Employee of the Year in 1989. She later retired from Celotex Corporation at the age of 68. Betty always loved to be at the beach fishing with her Children, Grandchildren and Husband Donald. She was known for her crab cakes which were always enjoyed by her family and friends. Betty always loved to take long walks along the seashore to look for treasures which she would frequently find. In her later life her illnesses prohibited her from enjoying her walks along the sea shore however, she never stopped longing to be dancing on the beach but now she can.

We all will have great memories of Betty Jewel Conn and she will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
