|Betty Jo Williamson, c. 1947|
Born in Middlesboro, Kentucky, on January 13, 1942, Betty Jo spent most of her life in Bell County, Kentucky, and just over the mountain in Claiborne County, Tennessee. Growing up, I always envied her gorgeous dark hair and lovely blue eyes. It was always a joy to hear her laugh or to eat a meal that she cooked, and she was one of the hardest-working people I've known. More than anything, though, I think Betty Jo loved being a mom to her two children and a grandmother to their children. She died of a massive stroke on November 15, 2006, and is buried in the William B. Lane family plot in Middlesboro's Hurst Cemetery.
