Proverbs 31:25
On Monday, August 24nd, 2020, Betty Woolley Goodwin, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away at the age of 72.

Betty was born on February 8th, 1948 in Alma, Georgia to Francis and Dorothy Mae Curl Dyal. She was an entrepreneur and server for many years in the Crestview area before retiring to live out her years with her family. She raised two daughters, Karan and Diane, and one son Lewis Glenn. In May 2013, she married the love of her life, Steve Goodwin.

Betty had passion for gardening and loved her chickens. She was loved not only by her family, but neighbors, and friends of her life. She was known for her quick wit, infectious laughter that could fill up a room, and sincere love for her grandchildren. They were all her favorite.

Aunt Betty Ruth got me hooked on ice with salt. She was the had you going at our family reunions. She had you laughing or crying. She really wanted us to keep our family reunions going. We need to remember that. She cared deeply for each and every one of us. I can remember seeing her and Eddie at Grandma's washing clothes outside .They mostly looked like they were playing and I remember a lot of suds. We will miss Aunt Betty Ruth, but we will laugh and we will cry together and we will see her again.I love you Aunt Betty Ruth…..
