May 14, 1933 ~ December 22, 2020
Born in: Daviess County, KY
Resided in: Owensboro, KY
Bettie K. Hall, 87 of Owensboro, passed away Tuesday, December 22, 2020, under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky Heartford House. Bettie was born May 14, 1933 in Daviess County to the late Max E. and Elizabeth Norris Keller. She was a member of Immaculate Catholic Church but St. Peter’s in Stanley was home. St. Peter’s is where she married the love of her life over 65 years ago and then raised their 7 children.
Who would have thought a larger-than-life personality could fit in such a person. Bettie, spelled with an “ie”, never met a stranger. She was the life of the party and she was always up for a good game of cards, going to the boat, working jigsaw puzzles, garage sales, and always there to cheer for the KY wildcats, the St. Louis Cardinals, and her kids and grandkids. You knew you were always thought about by Bettie as she never forgot a birthday by sending a card or by calling in her cheerful voice singing Happy Birthday or just calling to check on you. She truly loved and enjoyed her friends, but her most important joy in life for her was being a wife and then a mother to her children. Then came her grandchildren and great grandchildren and that was her pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Aside from her parents, Bettie is preceded in death by her husband, Clifford “Kick” Hall, and their baby girl, Amy Beth Young; 8 brother and sisters, John Keller, Leon Keller, Mary Helen “Sit” Bowman, Catherine “Bit” Giblin, Maxine Pfeiffer, Martine Kearns, Beverly “Ish” Rone and Anita “Punk” Mitchell.
She is survived by her two sons, Greg (Nancy) Hall, Sammy (Beth) Hall; four daughters, Tracy (Mike) Cecil, Michele (Tony) Howard, Kelly (Jeff) Husk and Leann (Rodney) Morris and a son-in-law Greg Young; 19 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.
