Betty was born in Long Beach California on August 2, 1926 to Charles C. and Lena Belle Berry. She graduated from Olathe High School in 1944 and from Mesa Junior College.
She married John “Jack” Corey in 1948. She and Jack farmed until 1964, when Jack was employed by the Division of Wildlife. Later she taught kindergarten in Basalt, Colorado and later worked in the Meeker and Poudre school districts. After retirement, she volunteered at the Cedaredge Elementary School and also tutored several students.
Her hobbies included reading, keeping up to date on the internet, listening to music (especially Andrea Bocelli) and home/interior design. Her greatest joy was her family.
