Betty Lou Holton

Betty Lou Holton, age 88 passed away of heart failure Friday at a local hospital, just 51 days after her husband's death. They say you can die of a broken heart, & if 67 years of marriage wasn't proof enough of their love, then her parting was.

She was born August 1930, in Alpena Arkansas to J. Samuel & Velvie Raynor. Betty was the youngest of 8 children. The family moved to Star Idaho in 1936, where she attended school and graduated from Middleton High School.

Betty worked for Mountain Bell Tele Comp where she met Norman Holton, who would become her husband. When they were dating, he told her, "Baby stick with me and you'll wear diamonds in your hair." On their 25th Wedding Anniversary, Norm had a custom set of diamond barrettes made, to wear in her hair, after all those years.

The two were married on Jan 27 1951, after which Betty became a wonderful homemaker. Norman and Betty had 3 children. She lived for her family & yard, and found immense joy in tending to her roses, posies, hibiscus, & dogwood trees. Betty's flowers, yard, & gazebo drew praise from her neighbors and made a coveted wedding venue.

Betty is preceded in death by her husband Norman, parents, & siblings. She is survived by 3 Children: Jo Brownlee(Bill), Mike Holton(Teresa), Nancy Holton Grandchildren: Shawn Brownlee(Amy), Christa Smith, Kelsey Meeker Great-Grandchildren: Bodie & Tysen Brownlee, Halley & Tessa Smith.

Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, Jan 2, 2019, 1pm at Alden-Waggoner Funeral Chapel in Boise, Idaho.
