During that time, she was married to Don Tindle and lived in Maybank, Texas. Upon the death of Don, Betty relocated herself to a residence shared by two of her brothers, Russell and Hubert.
She loved to take vacation trips with her cousin Rita and loved her family being all together for the holidays.
