Born in Hookersville, WV in 1929, she graduated from college in Parkersburg, WV and moved to Washington DC, where she began working and met her husband, John.

Betty moved to Anna Maria in 1981 and enjoyed many years of working with the various wildlife and historical groups on the island with her aunt Jeanne. She loved the beautiful island and close knit community.
Betty is predeceased by parents, Pearl and Otto McCoy of Clothier WV; husband, John; son, David; and her aunts, Jeanne Blassingame and Katie Kirby (maiden names Toman).
She is survived by her son and daughter, four grandchildren and one great granddaughter. She was loved dearly and will be missed by many.
Betty wished to return to her beloved WV so a graveside service will be held at Memory Gardens cemetery in Danville, WV at 11 a.m. June 14, 2012.
