Betty Payne Truslow
April 8, 1931 ~ October 11, 2023 (age 92) 92 Years Old
Betty Payne Truslow, 92, of Fredericksburg passed away on Wednesday, October 11, 2023. She was born on April 8, 1931.
Betty was married to William "Welford" Truslow on December 3, 1949 and together they spent 65 years before Welford passed away on March 21, 2014 at 95 years old. She had no children, but loved her cats! Betty met Welford going to a movie, they married, lived at his parent’s residence until building a home of their own. Both remained in that same home throughout their life. They loved to travel and find special places to eat and enjoy the culture and history of each area.
Betty was a member Fredericksburg Baptist Church. Betty worked for Quantico at the Development Center as an avid stenographer and secretary for 36 years. Betty was an avid bridge player for many years.
She is survived by her sister, Lucy Payne Willard; and many nieces and nephews. She was grateful and fond of her neighbors and friends that watched out for her, Diana and David, Julia and Ouris and Dave as well as being a friend to Glen.
She had an exceptional caregiver, Sylvia during the day and the services of Senior Helpers of Stafford during the nights and weekends. Affinity Care of Stafford provided exceptional care during her last days.
A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at Sunset Memorial Gardens.
It was Bettys wish that everyone would continue to care for cats by adopting them, keeping them safe, fed, neutered-spayed, and mostly loved! She asked that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA of Stafford to assist with their care.
