Betty J. Fuller was born on March 17, 1929 to Marion and Maudie (George) Fuller in Oklahoma City, OK. Her genealogy can be traced back to Edward Lyman Fuller and Samuel Fuller who were passengers on the historic 1620 voyage of the Pilgrim ship Mayflower. Edward became sick and passed away with the first sickness. Samuel became a respected church deacon and the physician for Plymouth Colony. On May 16, 1953 she married JD Roeder in Shidler, OK.

Betty was a homemaker, wonderful wife and mother. She enjoyed showering above and beyond everyone she met with love and affection, especially her beautiful and lovely family members. She loved to play a fast one on JD by putting a grandchild in the closet when he got home and went to put his boots up they would be ready and jump out at him.

She would make Christmas goodies and leave them in her mail box for the mail person. She didn’t have a mean bone in her body. If she knew you she would always be thinking of you and would be there for you for anything. Betty loved to can her fruits and vegetables that they grew in their garden.

In her last days she was found outside on the patio and taking in all the beauty nature had to offer her.

She is survived by husband JD Roeder; a sister, Nina Lee Fuller Anthony and husband John; daughters Pamela Kay Johnson and husband Keke, Leigh Ann Roeder and boyfriend Richard Wofford, and Cynthia Jean Reese; grandchildren Caley Ann Burdick, Micah Galen Johnson and Rhonda Wofford; nephews J.B. Anthony and Mike Anthony; great grand daughters Lacey Christine Burdick and Savannah Kay Burdick.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a brother Edward Lyman Fuller; a son-in-law G.D. Reese, Jr.

Honorary Casketbearers are Bill Eden, Danny Alexander, Lee Bruner, Dwight Bruner and Vickie Lehman
