In Yuma, Arizona, Betty and Jack L. Holloway were married on Oct. 21, 1955. They have shared nearly 65 years of life’s adventures. From their union came two wonderful children, Terry and Lanae.
Betty loved watching the feeding and habits of the hummingbirds and blue birds. She also enjoyed planting flowers around to landscape to add color and beauty.
