Betty Louise was born September 8, 1919 and died September 1987 in Huntington. Indiana. She was a daughter of Harry Dell and Virginia Hartt. She married Eugene Howell and lived in Huntington, Indiana. Betty is remembered for being kind to everyone she met. She would sacrifice her own comfort if it meant doing something special for someone else. She was also a lot of fun. She loved to go to the lakes on the weekends. Betty loved to cook! Every Sunday was a big family day around her house! She would spend hours in preparation. Her fried chicken could not be topped! Not only was she an excellent mother and grandmother, but she was a fine businesswoman and civic leader as well! She was a top Avon representative for close to 36 years. I used to help her bag her orders and go out with her to deliver. She had many customers. Everyone loved her and looked forward to her visit each week. In her Avon career she achieved many awards. One of the highlights of her time with Avon is the time she won a trip to Monaco. It was her first time out of the country. She had the privilege of having dinner with Princess Grace. All of the guests at the dinner received a beautiful scarf that Princess Grace designed for the event. It was very special to her. Betty was very sad when Princess Grace was killed shortly after that, in an automobile accident. Betty was a member of the Altrusa Club. This is a club that allows only one in each category from a stated career into the club at a time. She was a member until her passing in 1987. She was also a “Circle Leader” for several years in her church. She is fondly missed by her family and friends. To this union two children were born. Dianne and Jack. Her two grandchildren are Tamara and Troy. She remarried in 1980.
