Bettys gentle spirit and quiet ways impacted the destiny of all who were privileged to know her. She was a Proverbs 31 woman in word and deed. Her legacy is love.

I HAD MRS. MARTENEY FOR MANY CLASSES AT AB. SHE WAS A FIRST CLASS LADY. HER CLASSES WERE ALWAYS ORGANIZED AND WONDERFUL TO BE A PART OF. SHE ALWAYS LOOKED LIKE SHE CAME OUT OF A FASHIONED MAGAZINE. I HAVE MANY GOOD MEMORIES OF HER AND APPRECIATE HER HELPING ME TO BECOME A GOOD TEACHER. GOD BLESS ALL OF HER FAMILY.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was honored to be a student of Mrs. Martiney at A-B. She taught me humility and the importance of a strong work ethic. She always encouraged me to do my best. When I received a couple of teaching recognitions, I called her to tell her how much she changed my life. I remember her loving phone call following my dads unexpected death the summer before my student teaching. She called and made sure I had financial support to return and complete my degree. I remember her walking into the classroom as organized as anyone. She gave and received respect. My most cherished moments were her tokens and gifts to students at holiday times. I remember the full course meals she cooked for her students before finals where she invited us into her home for a "family" gathering. May this true educator receive accolades in heaven. Thank you, Mrs. Mart enemy for all you did for me. Peace and blessings. Tony Nichols

Bobbie Jo & Larry we were so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. I have so many fond memories of her. I always enjoyed my many stays at your home because of your Mom & Dad. They always made me feel so at home. I was always in awe of your Moms intelligence and kindness. I know you all will miss her a lot, but she is with your Dad and her siblings and she will be taken care of. You will see her again! RIP, Mrs. Marteney.
