Betty Lou Townsend of Louise, Texas passed away on August 23, 2020 at her sister’s home in Bellville.

She was born April 11, 1940 in El Campo to the late Emil and Ruby Townsend. Betty was a loving sister and aunt.  She worked at Second Time Around for 15 years.

She is survived by her siblings, Kenneth Townsend and wife Carolyn of El Campo, Carolyn Keaton of Bellville, Linda Taylor and husband Robin, Clyde Townsend, Ivan Townsend and wife Debbie all of Louise and Shirley Collinsworth and husband Jerry of Falfurrias.
