In Loving Memory of Betty Haughton, June 20, 1930 – April 12, 2014

Betty with daughters Elizabeth Peck and Ann Lamb

Our own dear Ann Lamb’s mother, Betty, was a beloved Master Gardener and friend to many of our volunteers. She was a frequent visitor to the Demonstration Garden on Joe Field Road and would light up the garden with her smile, her laugh, and the twinkle that only Betty had in such abundance. Such an irreplaceable, gracious, loving woman; we will miss her dearly.

Betty’s family and friends will celebrate her life at a memorial service at Grace Bible Church on Tuesday, April 15, at 10 am with graveside services at 2 pm at Sparkman/Hillcrest.

“Betty’s loving smile radiated the love of Christ Jesus as she was a blessing to all. She sewed seeds in hearts and also in her garden. Flowers and vegetables flourished wherever she lived, and she became a Dallas County Master Gardener at 78 in the class of 2008. Those who knew and loved Betty were familiar with her heartwarming ways, her love for her family, Sunday lunches, Haughton tea, Fourth of July floats and picnics, knitted baby hats and blankets, our country, and our military. Her quiet strength, humble spirit, and daily walk with her Savior are the legacies she leaves with all of us.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ann, her three sisters and their families.
