Betty was born June 25, 1935, in Birmingham, AL to the late William Chester and Ruth James Foster. She enjoyed traveling, taking care of her grandchildren, and she particularly loved to cook. Betty was a member of Taylors Baptist Church in Moody, AL. She was a very caring and giving person and always had kind words for everyone. Betty loved to pray, especially with loved ones, and there was no doubt she loved the Lord. Her faith like her will was very strong indeed.
