Betty Robertson was born March 19, 1943, to Mattie and Vernon Teafatiller in Gilroy, Cali. She passed from this life on Jan. 11, 2018, at the age of 74.
Betty accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior in 1962, soon after she and Clay were married.  She was always so proud that she was a stay at home mom, proud to be an integral part of her childrens’ lives. Once all of them were in school, she worked part time as a bookkeeper for Robertson’s Hams. Her pride and joy was that she developed the recipe for the cookies the store has sold for the past 28 years. Her favorite was the coconut pecan.  She retired after several years and enjoyed being a part of the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Betty always believed Sunday dinner should be special.  Her fried chicken Sunday dinner, Catherine Fannin’s recipe for hot rolls and Norene Choate’s recipe for beef brisket will truly be missed.  She loved to have people in her home to enjoy a meal whether just a few or a large group.  Just ask Tommy Higle. He would call her and invite the entire Sunday school class over for dinner. But that was alright with Betty, Tommy was more like a brother than her pastor.
For years she would serve the church in whatever capacity they needed.  She was a Sunday school teacher for both young and old, taught GAs, served wherever, whenever she was needed. She took great pride in the ministry she and her friend, Virginia Higle started for the church.  They tried to visit as many babies as possible that were born in Love County. For 15 years during these visits she got to do some of her favorite things: hold babies, visit with her friend and make new friends.  Friends were very important to her.  For several years she would exercise with Linda Russell and Linda Martin but it was much more about the friendships and fellowship than the exercise. She even enjoyed going to the dentist to talk cars with her friend Brook Edmonds. One of her favorite things to do was to spend time with her special lifelong friend that she loved very much, Glenita Franklin.  
Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Vernon and Mattie (Cook) Teafatiller; sisters Geraldine Dristle and Wanda Leslie; brothers Ed Teafatiller, Orville Teafatiller, Limuel Teafatiller, Milton Teafatiller, and William “Bill” Teafatiller.
She is survived by her husband Clay Bonner Robertson of the home; daughters Susan Kay Robertson of Arlington, Texas, Leslie Ann Weddige and her husband Karl of Lubbock, Texas; sons Rob Bret Robertson and his wife Brenda of Burneyville, Okla., and Michael Clay Robertson and his wife Crystal of Ardmore, Okla.; brother Robert Teafatiller; grandchildren April Tarter, Bret Robertson, Russell Robertson, Dillon May, Abby Paschall, Molly Paschall, Sydney Robertson, Porter Robertson, and Hap Elizabeth Robertson; and great-grandchildren Dalton May, Aubrey May, and Penelope Tarter.
