Betty R. Disney - 1929-2010
Betty R. Disney, 80, of Russell, Ky., passed away in King's Daughters Medical Center on Thursday, April 8, 2010 following a brief illness.
Before dedicating her life to her family and home, she spent many years working at two local pharmacies and enjoyed the time she spent with the VFW Women's Auxiliary. She loved camping with her husband, family and friends and was an avid UK Wildcats fan. Her rock garden and yard consumed many of her summer days. Not only were her flower beds and home cared for meticulously but the care she gave to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will forever be remembered and appreciated. She was also a dear friend to many, including her long-time neighbors, the Jones and Adams families.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Stella and Roosevelt Lemon; an infant sister, Lois Lemon; a brother-in-law, Walter Disney and her husband of 49 years, Paul V. Disney.
She is survived by her brother, James Lemon; a very special sister-in-law, Audrey Lemon; brother-in-law, Donald B. Disney (Carolyn) and sister-in-law, Kathy Disney (Walter); her two children, Don Disney and Kathy Disney Layman (Gary); two grandchildren, Chris Disney (Joann) and Ashley Layman-Bohanon (Richard); her great-grandchildren, Paul Disney, Gemma Disney, Corina Disney and Rilee Layman-Bohanon; and a host of near and dear extended family.
