Betty was born January 11, 1925 and grew up in Tampa, Florida. She earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees in teaching from the University of Miami and the University of Georgia. Betty spent her career first as a school teacher at Robert E Lee High School in Springfield VA, and in retirement as a realtor at Coldwell Banker in Alexandria VA.
After retiring to Tampa FL to help care for her mother in the last years of her life, Betty and her husband Charlie returned to Alexandria in 1999 to be near their children. Betty spent the final years of her life living at Sunrise Senior Living in Reston VA where she was visited almost daily by her devoted children.
Betty is survived by her sons and daughter, Charles Jr, Nancy and Matthew. She was preceded in death by her husband Charles (Charlie) Howe, and by her brothers Allen Morrison of Florida and Grant Morrison of North Carolina, all in recent years.
Her ashes will be spread at a later date by her children, at the beach as she always wanted.
