Betty was the former owner of the wool shop on Whalley Road, Clayton and has also worked as the Stewardess at the Tory Club and Bottom Club and also as a care worker at the Woodlands. She was an avid knitter and loved nothing more than settling in her chair knitting away whist listening to one of her favourite audio books.
