Betty was born on June 6, 1921, in Grass Valley at Jones Hospital to George and Florence Clara Uren.

They raised a family and lived the rest of their lives in Grass Valley. She enjoyed square dancing, travelling, and was a pink lady at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital for over 30 years working mainly in the emergency room.
