The life of Betty Sue Mizer
Betty Sue was born to Billy Jim and Wanda Mizer on August 4, 1956 in Boise City, OK. She was welcomed home by her older sister Becky, later Billy Ray was added to the family to make it a perfect size.
At age 11 she had health issue that left her partially paralyzed on her right side. It didn’t take her spirit away, for she loved to harass and tease anyone she came in contact with. She would reach out and want to shake your arm but she had a mighty grip so you didn’t let her do it very often.
She had a kindness towards animals, all the dogs and cats would end up in her lap. Her love for pets extended to welcoming new born pigs at the family farm. Actually, any new born animal put a smile on her face.
She attended Boise City Schools and graduated in 1975, she was active in athletics and usually the strongest on the team even though she was handicapped. Outside of school, she always enjoyed a good square dance.
She was busy helping Billy Jim and Wanda either driving the pipe trailer or home washing dishes after every meal, after high school and continued this for many years.
Every afternoon for many years you would see Wanda and Betty out for a drive to get the mail, run errands and always meeting up with Eunice for a drink.
She was always excited to see a familiar face and you could tell because her eyes would light up, and she didn’t mind pointing out that your belly was getting bigger. She was always excited when the nieces and their friends came by grandma’s house to put a smile on their faces.
She enjoyed getting her nails painted and being pampered.
She resided in the home until her parents passed and then spent the rest of her years at Coldwater Manor where she was the life of the home hitting people with her cane, it was taken away several times.
Betty is preceded in death by her parents Billy Jim and Wanda Mizer.
She is survived by her sister Becky Smoot and her brother Billy Ray Mizer and his wife Kim. Along with her nieces Bridgett Mizer, Kassidy Rosas, Kayla Hibbert and Autumn Mizer. Also her great-nieces Kara and Izabelle.
