Left to cherish her wonderful memories are two loving daughters, Elizabeth F. Varner and Amy R. Fitch; a beloved grandson, Brett J. Varner and his wife, Terra R. Varner; a sister-in-law, Nancy Carter Snodgrass Pendergrass and nieces, nephews and friends.

Betty graduated from Spring City High School; one of her outstanding awards was the Thespian Award which she received her senior year. She went on to attend the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and Middle Tennessee State University from which she received a B.S. degree in elementary education. Betty's teaching career spanned 42 years, 38 of which were in the Hamilton County School System and the Chattanooga Public Schools. She began teaching in Polk County, Tenn., where her late husband was Superintendent of Schools. She also taught in Georgia before her teaching tenure in Tennessee at DuPont Elementary School from which she retired and from where she received the Tennessee Congress of Parents and Teachers Life Membership Award from the DuPont Elementary School PTA. Long before it was popular, Betty felt strongly that the arts should be a part of the school curriculum; with the help of Allied Arts of Greater Chattanooga, she used her abilities to enhance the education of her students.

It was Betty's belief that an educator should belong to, support, and seek knowledge from educational associations. Before retirement she was associated with the Hamilton County and Chattanooga Education Associations, Tennessee Education Association, East Tennessee Education Association and the National Education Association. She also held membership in the DuPont Elementary School PTA, the Association for Childhood Education, and the International Reading Association, assisting with workshops and presentations when her school hosted meetings.

At her death, Betty held membership in the Chattanooga Hamilton County Retired Teachers' Association, Tennessee Retired Teachers' Association and the National Education Association. She formerly held membership in the Chattanooga Chapter of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge and Chi Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa International Honorary Sorority for Outstanding Women Educators. She was presently a member of Lambda Chapter of Psi State/Tennessee of National Kappa Kappa Iota Organization for Educators where she was serving on the Executive Board as President-Elect as well as devotional and hostess chairman including most recently the 2009 Psi State/Tennessee State Convention in Chattanooga. Her Thespian flair for decorating was exercised in her chairmanship and hosting local and state meetings; as chairman of devotions, she delivered and involved members in unique and thought-provoking soliloquies.

She had served in various state posts, offices, committees, and chairmanships in Gamma Conclave and on the Psi State/Tennessee Executive Board. She assisted with the National Tennessee Convention of Kappa Kappa Iota in Nashville, Tenn., and with a Tennessee sister's National Presidency festivities. After retirement, Betty became a Chattanooga American Red Cross Volunteer at Memorial Hospital, Northpark where she volunteered one day weekly for over ten years until she became too ill to serve.

For years, Betty and her family were members of First Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga; she and her late husband were also members of the Lee Anderson Sunday School Class. At her death, she was a member of Hixson United Methodist Church where she volunteered as a phone hostess.

The family will receive friends from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. today at the North Chapel.

Services for Elizabeth will follow at 11:30 a.m. today at the North Chapel with the Rev. Randy Martin officiating.
