Betty Marie Goodnight
1931-2024
Betty Marie Goodnight, age 92 passed peacefully in her sleep on 6/25/2024 near Houston, TX.

Betty was born on 11/25/31 in Wichita, Kansas. Most of Betty’s early childhood was spent in Chase Kansas and Howard Kansas where she enjoyed a very musical family and played the piano, guitar, and even picked up the art of yodeling.

Upon graduating from Howard High School in 1949 Betty chose banking as her profession which provided her the opportunity to live in many areas of the country including Wichita KS, Bangor ME, Minneapolis MN, Denver CO, Dallas TX, and finally in Houston Texas.

Wherever Betty lived she took time to educate herself at local universities, including the University of Houston. Betty is remembered for her remarkable ability to craft amazing letters and correspondence with beautiful penmanship that was beyond reproach. She was a meticulous records keeper and enjoyed collecting and cataloging historical documents. Her favorites were documents, books and pictures about America’s founding fathers, the Kennedy’s, Elvis Presley, John Wayne, Princess Diana, and Disney. Betty was also a fabulous cook who enjoyed hosting dinner parties for family and friends. A dinner visit to Betty’s home usually included a multi-course home cooked meal served on proper place settings and would always finish with the most fantastic homemade desserts. Most of all, Betty loved spending time with family and doting on her nieces and nephews. She will be remembered by all that knew her as a kind soul with a loving heart who was always quick with a smile for anyone she greeted.
