Betty Jo Booth, 86, passed away peacefully Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, at Grace Living Center in Oklahoma City. She was born July 21, 1929, in Macomb, to Harvey L. and Ruby May (French) Collins. She grew up and attended school in Shawnee. She later married Bill Booth on Sept. 20, 1947. Betty was a woman of many talents and interests. She enjoyed bird watching, gardening and quilting, and she held a deep passion for children. Betty was a woman of great faith. She was a longtime teacher of the “Sonshine Girls” ladies’ Sunday school class and even served as the church secretary for First Baptist Church in Moore and Emmaus Baptist Church. Of all the things Betty enjoyed, the joy of her life was her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and that joy was demonstrated by her love and care of her family. Betty was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Bill Booth; her brothers, AJ Collins and Warren Collins; and her son, Danny Booth. She is survived by sons Curtis Booth and wife Carol of Humble, Texas, and Mike Booth and wife Freddi of Moore; grandchildren Danielle and Jerrold Self of Newcastle, Angela and Chris Fallwell of Tuttle and Scott and Adrienne Booth of Austin, Texas; and great-grandchildren Ryan Self, Paige, Reese and Luke Fallwell, and Jackson and Rex Booth. The family thanks the staff of Grace Living Center, Chaplain Cathy Tisher, Brookwood and Good Shepherd Hospices and Tribute Memorial Care for the excellent services they provided for their mom. A celebration of life for Betty Jo was Tuesday, Sept. 22, at First Baptist Church of Moore. There was a private interment at Memorial Park Cemetery. Services were under the direction of Tribute Memorial Care at 708 24th Ave. NW in Norman. Condolences may be shared online at tribute.care. The American, Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015
