Bettie was one of five sisters who graduated from Stephen F. Austin High school. While a freshman in high school she met her future husband Frank Thurmond and they enjoyed a marriage of nearly sixty years. They raised three sons in Bryan, Texas after graduation from Texas A&M University. Bettie was active in her church lending a hand and prayers to those in need. She used her decorating skills to not only decorate her family’s home, but lent her skills to her friends and the South Texas Children’s Home. She also served as a pink lady and garden club enthusiast. She fought a long battle with cancer and will always be remembered for her deep love for her family, friends, church, and her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
