Betty was born in Louisville on June 30, 1934, daughter of Myrtle and Walter Jaggers. She graduated from Manual High School. She worked as Bookeeper/Auditor for many years. Most of that experience was with Kentucky State Government. She was briefly married to Walter Hightower and later met the love of her life Guy Barker while working for Paul Miller Ford in downtown Lexington during the early 60’s. They married and lived in the Frankfort area for over 40 years. Betty loved the water spending as much time as she could on Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee. She also loved good food and enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and co-workers. She liked to travel having made multiple trips to California, Florida, and Myrtle Beach South Carolina. She was very proud of her son and stepsons and quick to remind people of what they were up to. Betty and Guy were members of Forks of Elkhorn Baptist Church. She was a loving person who gave more than she asked of others. Services will be held at Harrod Brothers Funeral Home on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Todd Lester officiating.
