Betty Lou

Betty Lou

A Poem by Randy Johnson

Dedicated to Betty Lou Williams (1939-2013) who died May 27, 2013.


Let me tell you about a story that's certainly true.

It's about a lady who was named Betty Lou.

She went to school with my uncle and was the mother-in-law of another uncle of mine.

Everybody who knew her, knew that she was sweet and kind.


She had two children and a marriage that lasted nearly sixty years.
Now her friends and family are mourning and shedding their tears.

She had been sick for a while before she passed away.

All of her family will love her for the rest of their days.


It's always painful when a good person dies.

Betty was a Leo just like my mom and I.

Pain and grief are what her family is going through.

They're having to say goodbye to Betty Lou.
