McCan, marrying on May 10th, 1968 in Magdalena, NM. They were married for 41 years. Their son, Mace, was born on April 1, 1969. He was the light of their life!

Betty was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend! She liked a good joke (naughty or nice), a beer every now and then, and red enchiladas, always! She enjoyed fishing and camping (in her younger days), crocheting, sewing, baking, watching PBS mysteries and reading a good book. She was also a great cook!! Her pies were legendary!! Most of all, she enjoyed being around her family, especially her granddaughters and great-grandsons! Her days were filled with happiness just being with them! They are missing her greatly!!
