Betty later began a 28-year career as a school bus driver for the Bulloch County Board of Education and was well known as one of the original employees of Vandy’s BBQ in the Statesboro Mall where she waited tables for many years. Betty loved being outside working in the yard and tending to her garden. She and her sister-in-law Marguerite Perkins enjoyed spending time together visiting friends and extending a helping hand to others. She was well known for being seen waving at passerby’s from her riding lawnmower or in her rocking chair on her front porch of the log home she built with companion Jesse Bunch in Leefield. Her door was always open to family and friends alike. Betty was of Baptist faith and a member of Trinity Baptist Church in Nevils, Georgia.
