Betty Lou Yount, 62, of Greenville, Ohio, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 12, 2021, at Ayden Healthcare in Greenville.
She was born on March 2, 1959, in Greenville, to the late Maynard and Amanda (Grey) Garland.
In addition to her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her sister, Mary Maxwell; her brother, Charles Garland; and her 6 infant siblings.
Betty was a devout shopper. Whether she had $5.00 or $500.00, Betty was always on the lookout for a good deal. She enjoyed checking out Goodwill for her next finds or stopping by many local garage sales. Betty worked for many local restaurants and bowling alleys as their cook. If you have eaten in Greenville, there is a good chance you have eaten food made by Betty.
When she wasn’t cooking or shopping, Betty could be found on her front porch, ice cold Pepsi in her hand, watching the world go by. She would spend hours upon hours just enjoying the great outdoors and watching the cars go by. Betty liked to paint, color, and do puzzles and crosswords.
