The family came to the Fairfax Oklahoma community in 1945, where she attended both Grayhorse and Fairfax Schools, graduating with the Red Devil Class of 1960. Following high school, Betty married Franklin E. Haines on October 25, 1960 at Pawnee, OK. Two daughters, Debbie and Shelia, which they raised in Fairfax, completed their family.
Betty worked at Blucher Boot Company; as a CNA at the Fairfax Nursing Home on Eighth Street and followed the move to the current day location of the Fairfax Manor. After working in the health care field for over twenty years, Betty retired in 2001, to enjoy life with her family which now included grandchildren.
She enjoyed crocheting; working crossword puzzles; working in the yard in her flower beds; she loved going out-of-town shopping with all her “girls”; attending church at the Full Gospel Assembly; and taking care of her family, with special care given to Frank the last few years.
