Born September 1st, 1932 in Marble City, Oklahoma, Betty was the daughter of Tom B. and Mary E. (Tounzen) Cherry. Her father's work brought her family to Rogers County at an early age where she grew up on the Verdigris River and attended school.

Betty worked at Gateway Luggage for many years on the assembly line where she met Leslie England. The couple married May 4, 1959 in Miami, Oklahoma. Betty loved walking, cooking, spending time with her family, and caring for her lawn and flowerbeds. A long-time member of King Road Baptist Church, Betty loved working in the nursery taking care of the children. She also loved talking to friends and family on the phone. Betty will be dearly missed by many friends and family that loved her.

Surviving family members include her husband, Leslie England; her children, Jim W. Timmerman and Guy L. England and his wife, Cathy; her grandchildren: Cindy Wilson and Justin Brassfield; her great grandchildren: Logan Brassfield, Madyson Wilson, and Chase Zucker; and her sister, Thelma Hammonds. Betty was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Edna P. Dotson; and her brothers, Bob, Bill, and Roger Cherry.

She was a dear friend of my aunt Maybelle Williams. They talked on the phone probably daily. She would take aunt Maybelle to the grocery store and they went out to eat for their birthdays. Now they will be talking up a storm in heaven.
