She was born October 7, 1927, in Seattle, Washington, a daughter of the late John and Lenora Steel Hall.
Betty graduated from Olive Hill High School. She married Paul Ison of Olive Hill, on December 31, 1947. Betty was primarily a homemaker and a wonderful at home mom, but she also worked as a seamstress and day care provider. She was a member of the Methodist church.

Betty is survived by two daughters, Paula Jane Smathers of Winter Park, Florida, and Alice Joy Connelly of Great Falls, Virginia; three grandchildren, Terry Smathers of Orlando, Flordia, Kristen Connelly Cox of Atlanta, Georgia, and Patrick Connelly of Reston, Virginia; and five great grandchildren, Elizabeth Cox, Joshua Cox, Joel Connelly, Sam Connelly, and Ben Connelly.
