Betty Lou (Waters) Greenhaw was born on October 11, 1937 in Oklahoma City, OK to Floyd and Gartrell Waters. When Betty was 9 years old, tragedy struck her family when she lost her mother, aunt and uncle, becoming a mother to her siblings, Doris, Floyd, and Earnie. From that moment on, she became a caregiver to those she loved, a nurturing mother, aunt, sister, grandmother to everyone around her. Betty was the epitome of strength and lived life to the fullest, giving Godly counsel to those of us that went to her for wisdom.

Betty grew up in her grandparents home and graduated from Hale Center High School. She met the love of her life, Wayne Greenhaw, through his parents at church. Their first date was to Sunday night church. Betty only went to college for one semester before Wayne proposed to her and they were married on September 22, 1956 at the Hale Center Church of Christ. They then spent 53 happy years together raising their children, Jerald, Jane, Gail, and Greg and then loving and spoiling their 8 grandchildren, Brad, Michelle, Aslyn, Jon Todd, Tyrell, Kyle, Elizabeth, and Kevin. Their legacy of love would continue on to their 4 great grandchildren, Brice, Harper, Colt and Cade, and a 5th one that Betty was anxiously anticipating.

Betty’s love for people moved her to volunteer and substitute at the school in Cotton Center for many years, she was an active member of the Hale Center Church of Christ for 75 years and helped in every capacity possible, but her favorite was rocking babies in the cradle roll. Betty loved spending time with her family and she cherished her time at the cabin. So, when those two coincided, it was heaven for her. The Blue Haven community was full of love and friendship, so she couldn’t wait to get up there every summer, and she spent as much time at the cabin each season as she could.

Betty’s faith was an inspiration to all who knew her. She lived her life loving like Jesus and being the hands and feet of Jesus to anyone who needed help. 

Betty is survived by her siblings, Doris Sanders, Floyd Waters, Earnie Waters; three children: Jerald Greenhaw of Plainview, Gail Hutson and her husband, Jonny of Lubbock, Greg Greenhaw and his wife, Angela of Sundown; eight grandchildren: Brad Cummings and his wife Jamie of Hale Center, Michelle Post and her husband, Steve of Plainview, Tyrell Johnson of Edmond, OK, Aslyn Henry and husband, Hoyt of Lubbock, Jon Hutson and fiance, Miranda of Lubbock, Kyle Greenhaw, and wife Makayla of Lubbock, Elizabeth Greenhaw of Lubbock, and Kevin Greenhaw of Sundown; and 4 great grandchildren: Brice and Harper Cummings, Colt and Cade Post,  and numerous beloved nieces, nephews, cousins.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd and Gartrell Waters; her husband, Wayne Greenhaw; grandparents, and many aunts and uncles.
