Betty Lea Horton

Betty Horton, 74, of Desloge, passed away December 25, 2023, at Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis. She was born September 29, 1949, in Bonne Terre, to the late John and Delores (Johnson) Compton.

Betty married the love of her life on October 28, 1967, at the Cantwell Baptist Church in Cantwell. She was a member of the Cantwell Baptist Church but later attended the Elvins Baptist Church. Betty was a member of the Eastern Star Chapter 260 and enjoyed watching 80’s tv shows and traveling to Australia. However, her pride and joy were her family and grandchildren, and the time she got to spend with them.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband of 53 years, Marvin Roger Horton; and one brother, John Compton, Jr.

Betty is survived by two sons, Teddy Horton and wife Michelle, Aaron Horton and wife Alison, grandchildren, Tyler, Garrett, Eli, Ethan and Felicity Horton; and cat, Blackie.
