Barton, Bettye Walker - Overton  
Service for Bettye Walker Barton, 92, Overton, will be at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015, in the Cottle-Pearson Funeral Home Chapel with Dr. Ryan Jouett officiating. Burial will follow in Overton City Cemetery. Bettye Walker Barton left on her last big adventure on Aug. 22, 2015. She was born Aug. 4, 1923, near Bullard, and was the youngest child of the late Hal Walker and Janie Sherwood Dumas. She graduated from Bullard High School and played on the girls' basketball team, which went to State. She attended the Federal Institute in Tyler and moved to Houston to work in the early years of World War II. Bettye and C.B. Barton were married Sept. 6, 1942, in Houston, and were late to their own wedding when it was discovered they'd left the marriage license at a relative's house. After the wedding, they rode the train to Tallahassee, Florida, as that was C.B.'s next assignment. He had joined the Army Air Corps in 1940, and thus they began their 23-year career. Bettye followed C.B. to each base assignment, making a home for him and the children. Bettye told many stories about their different assignments, being stationed in Georgia, Alabama, Colorado, Utah, Texas, Louisiana and even England. Their final assignment was Loring Air Force Base, Maine, where they spent six long winters! After retirement, they moved to Lake Striker near Henderson, and later they moved to Overton. Wherever they moved, they got involved in a church, both singing in the choir. C.B. passed away in 1996, and in 1999 Bettye moved to Georgetown. She joined the First Baptist Church of Georgetown and became involved in her Sunday school and Friday Folks. She also joined the Study Club of Georgetown. Bettye loved to travel, and she always said "Go "was her middle name. She took trips to Europe and to the West Coast of the U.S. with friends. In 2010, she took her children and their spouses to England to see where they had been stationed. She loved to read and to antique. Many happy hours were spent at the Canton Flea Market and antique malls. "Miss Bettye" is survived by her daughter, Sherry Barton Moran and husband Tim, of Carrollton; her son, Clinton B. Barton Jr. and wife Sue, of Georgetown; five grandchildren, Mikel Moran Ranly and husband Steven, of Troy, Marc Moran and wife Allyson, of Highland Village, Tommy Moran, of Dallas, Amanda Barton Jouett and husband Ryan, of Bryan, and Aaron Barton and wife Sally, of San Antonio. There are also nine great-grandchildren, Courtlyn and Kelley Ranly, Parker and Cooper Moran, Ellie, Kyle and Zach Jouett and Simon and Sadie Barton. She is also survived by her sisters-in-law, Faye Walker, of Abbeville, Louisiana, JoNan Barton, of Henderson, and Joy Barton, of Tyler. Bettye will be welcomed to Heaven by the love of her life, C.B.; her parents, Hal and Janie; her brother, Harold Walker; and her sister, Mary Glass. Pallbearers will be Tim Moran, Marc Moran, Tommy Moran, Steven Ranly, Aaron Barton, and Keith Barton. The family wishes to thank the staff of Brookdale Senior Living of Georgetown and Brookdale Hospice for their attentive and compassionate care of our mother and grandmother. Miss Bettye always knew they were helping her. Visitation will be from 11:30 am until service time, prior to the funeral service. Memorials may be made to the charity of your choice in Bettye's name.
