Betty Lee Wallis (Brown)

# 2,160 She graduated from dear ole THS back when many years ago. Over the years she never missed a class reunion usually held at Frontier Cafe. She was born in the Prospect Community to Ben Adams and Esther Rhodes Wallis. After graduation and Henderson Business College, she met and married Gus Brown. They lived in the Chickenfeather area and raised 2 children, Don, and Robin. They enjoyed over 60 years of happy marriage. Betty loved the Lord, her family, life itself, history, and genealogy. She had one sister, Christine. Her Grandfather Will Rhodes and my Grandfather were brothers. After Gus passed away, Betty enjoyed her last happy years at Lake Cherokee. She passed away recently from complications and other illnesses. I am thankful for all of the memories and good times we shared over the years. Her favorite song was “Jesus Paid It All.” Palms 23, her favorite scripture. Betty, I will always love you! You are gone but not forgotten! RIP!
