Betty Jean Myers

Betty Jean Myers of Coffeyville, KS passed away on Thursday, March 7, 2024, in Coffeyville, Kansas at Medicalodges following a short illness and hospitalization.

Betty was born in West Mineral, KS., on December 19, 1932; the daughter of Margaret Ellen (Hearson) Hubert & Oscar Hubert. Betty was a child of the Great Depression and lived through very hard times. Her parents divorced and Betty and her mother moved in with her grandparents, Arthur & Fannie Hearson, NE of Parsons, KS. Betty attended the rural Stone Palace school. 

In time, Margaret met and later married Selden Bowman of rural Mound Valley, KS. Soon, Betty and her mother would move to Mound Valley, KS. where Betty attended Mound Valley's schools. 

Betty later met & married her husband, Dale Myers of Rural Cherryvale, KS., on September 3, 1950. They lived in rural Cherryvale and rural Mound Valley. In the coming years the couple had 3 children, Pamela Sue, Roger Dale & Rodney Dean. Another son, Gary Joe died during infancy. 

In 1956, the family moved to Coffeyville, KS. Dale began a job as a truck driver with various trucking companies and worked at that for many years. Betty also worked supporting the family at Clark Graves Insurance Co. as well as at George's Cafeteria in Coffeyville. 

In 1984, Betty & Dale established their own trucking company, D & M Trucking Company, to haul livestock.

Then, in 1989, Betty & Dale purchased property & moved to nearby Dearing. They bought and raised cattle for several years. They retired from D & M Trucking in 1994. 

Betty’s husband Dale, passed away in July 1995. Betty remained at home until Fall of 2023. Also, during this time her son, Roger, of Oliver Springs, TN. passed away in 2012; as did her other son Rodney, of Topeka, KS. in 2023. 

It was then Betty realized she could no longer live alone at her Dearing home. She made the difficult decision to leave her home and go to Assisted Living at Gran Villas at Medicalodge in nearby Coffeyville. Betty moved there in October 2023. 

Betty was an avid horse lover and owned a horse of her own for several years. She also admired her many horse figurines. She was a member of the Dearing Christian Church & had attended services there. She could be seen riding into town in her pickup, running errands.

She continued to be independent, wanting not to be a burden to anyone. Betty so looked forward to precious phone calls and visits from longtime friends. 

Again, Betty was preceded in death by her husband, Dale Myers, sons, Roger & Rodney Myers, infant son, Gary Myers, and a grandchild. 

Betty is survived by a daughter, Pamela Banzet (Howard) of Valeda, KS. She is survived by numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; half-brother, Bill Bowman of Oswego, KS., half-sister, Donna (Bowman) Blancett (Tom), of Chesapeake, VA.
