Betty Jean Veach

• Betty Jean Veach was born July 19, 1952, in Wynnewood, to the late Jim and Velma D. (Buckaloo) Cottrell. She died Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2022, in Davis, at the age of 70. Betty and Ronnie James Veach were married on March 24, 1971, in Sulphur. From this union was born one son, Rodney.
Betty grew up in Davis, where she attended school. After high school, she spent a few years working as a cosmetologist in Davis. After she and Ronnie married, they relocated to Oklahoma City, where she spent many years working as a certified property manager managing large apartment complexes in the Oklahoma City area. Following her retirement in 1990, they moved back to Davis.
