She was raised on a farm in Plainview, Texas, which gave her a life-long love of the outdoors. Betty was a proud graduate of Texas Tech University and spent many happy years teaching sixth grade in Lancaster, California before retiring and moving to Maryland.

Those that knew Betty well knew that she was always the life of the party, and that there was never a dull moment to be had while in her company. Betty is survived by her children, Beverly O'Brallaghan, Pamela Smallcomb, Larry Kyle McLooney, son-in-law Richard Smallcomb, and grandchildren Christopher, Amelia, Alexander, Caitlin, Patrick and Lucas Smallcomb.
