Margaret Elizabeth (Betty) Wilson's life was an adventure full of love and joy because she made it so; her friends, family and loved ones were the beneficiaries. Whether it was a sing along in the car on the way to the First Methodist Church in Dallas with her parents and brother, sewing her own dresses and her sons' shirts, presiding over the high school booster club for nine years, organizing Southside (Houston) Neighborhood events or serving up her delicious homemade ice cream, she did it all with great enthusiasm. Of course, she was the originator of the "Granny Kick" which delighted her grandchildren but when demonstrated in their separate schools often drew some degree of discipline. Life was always warm and fuzzy when you were in her presence.
