They were married in 1958 and moved back to Devon’s home in Marshall County, Indiana. Betty and Devon moved to Plymouth, Indiana in 1967 and lived in the same house for 37 years. She was a homemaker and raised three children until 1979 when she was employed by West School as a teacher’s aide. She worked as a librarian at the Plymouth Public Library until her retirement.

Betty was a choir member and also sang in a women’s trio at the church. Her favorite Bible verse was John 3:16: FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ENTERNAL LIFE.
