As a charter (1951) member of her beloved Tyne Meade Garden Club, Betty always loved all things blooming. This was her favorite time of year ''' often found outdoors and working in the yard. She was a long time member of St. George's Episcopal Church in Nashville. Betty was also an active DAR member of the Fort Nashborough chapter locally. Following his death, she continued her husband, Walker's involvement in the Military Officer's Association of America (MOAA) by creating a scholarship in his name.

At her request, a private family graveside service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to Alive Hospice, St. George's Episcopal Church (Nashville) or the charity of your choice.
