Betty Lou Blue

Betty Lou Blue, 94, passed away at home on Wednesday June 19, 2019, with her daughters and family by her side.

Betty was born January 12, 1925, in Connersville, Indiana, the daughter of Robert E. and Nellie Mae Doughty Nichols. She married Cloyce (Bud) Blue in 1946 and had two daughters, Denese and Debbie.

Bud and Betty owned and operated Midway Hobby Shop and later the Connersville City Beverage Co. They were members of the Central Christian Church and spent nearly every weekend at their home in Rising Sun on the Ohio River.

Betty lived in Connersville until Bud’s passing in 1999, at which time she moved to Austin, Texas to be near her eldest daughter Denese, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In 2013, Betty moved to Chico, California, where she spent her days with her daughter Debbie, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Betty loved her family profoundly. Anyone who knew her experienced her genuine care and quick wit. She will be so deeply missed.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents and husband, as well as her five brothers and two sisters.

She is survived by Denese and Steve Leslie, Debbie and Lee Hamre, eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. A family memorial service will be held in Chico, California.
