Senior Living Resident Spotlight – Betty Colvin

Mrs. Betty Colvin grew up in Gordonsville, VA along with her sister Eugenia. Throughout her early years her family spent time in Gordonsville, Barboursville, and Orange. Betty graduated from Orange County High School and later took a job working for Frey Insurance.

As luck would have it a friend introduced Betty to her future husband who happened to be a Navy Sailor home on leave. After meeting the couple knew they were meant to be together and soon after Warren got out of service the couple was married and began a family of their own.

The couple had 4 children, Stephanie, Stephen, Edwin and a son whom passed away at a young age. Betty has been a lifelong member of Barboursville Methodist Church and finds comfort and strength in her faith. Through the years Betty has dabbled in many hobbies but some of which she’s most fond of include: reading, gardening, and antiquing. In all her years nothing has brought her more joy than being able to watch her children and grandchildren grow up and become successful.
