Betty Taylor, age 83, left her earthly home in Kingwood, Texas, to be with her Lord in Heaven on Thursday, March 3, 2016. The daughter of Dorothy and Bryan Boswell was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. While attending Texas State College for Women in Denton, TX she met her Texas A&M “Aggie” husband on a blind date in College Station. After two years, Carter & Betty were happily married on December 20, 1952.  After Carter served in the US Air Force, they settled in Groves, Texas where they raised their family.
Betty was amazingly talented and creative. She was an accomplished artist, specializing in watercolor and oil painting. She also sewed clothing for her 3 daughters and herself. Betty had the gift of hospitality with her love of cooking and of people. Her greatest calling was teaching God’s Word in Community Bible Study, Sunday School and Joy of Living Bible Study for over 45 years. Betty was a fervent prayer warrior for all of her family and friends and in her later years, the Lord gave her 20 songs to sing and share with others.
Betty is survived by her loving husband and soul-mate, Carter; three daughters, Pam Taylor- Glass and her husband David, Rhonda Rife and her husband Ronald, all from Spring, and Brenda Lundberg and her husband David from Humble; four grandchildren, Taylor Rife and his wife Alicia, Carter Rife, Landon Lundberg and his wife Lauren, and Reid Lundberg.
