Betty had a remarkable impact on countless lives throughout her journey. She earned an associate degree in social work at Austin Peay State University, served as a club scout den mother, and was a kidney donor to her daughter, Kim. She was known as a poet, baker, hostess, and seamstress.  

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Gene "Nick" Nichols; daughter, Kimberly Nichols, and daughter, by marriage, Pamela Nichols-Griffing.
