Betty was a Brownwood High School graduate and attended business college in Abilene. Throughout her life, she worked in the banking and accounting industry. She married Aubrey Keeling, and they had three children, living many years in San Angelo. In 1974, she married Earl Taylor, and they lived in Iraan and retired in Tow.

Earl preceded her in death in 2001, and Betty later relocated to Kingsland, where she had multiple hobbies: dancing, traveling, playing bridge, and attending plays at Hill Country Community Theatre.

She leaves behind four great-grandchildren, Travis Council, Mercedez Council, Avery Zepeda, and Carter Zepeda, and numerous exceptional friends, including but not limited to, Rick Dewvalle, Ruth Kjos, and Gay Baskin.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Peterson Hospice in Kerrville or the Highland Lakes Senior Center in Kingsland.

Our family would like to invite all family and friends to a post-service luncheon at Inman’s Kitchen BBQ in Llano to reminisce, celebrate, and laugh in memory of our loving mother, aka Grammy.
