Betty was born in Blytheville, Arkansas May 26 to Ruth J. (nee Vellars) and Neely A. Hendon. She had her first baby at the age of 21, found her true love, Vietnam Army Specialist Joseph G. Migliore. They married March 29, 1969 and went on to have 3 more children. She raised her children with tons of love and they grew into loving beautiful people. As the baby of 10 kids, she had many nieces and nephews, all of whom had a special place in her heart. Some even grew up with her as siblings. Her artistic skills put her in a place where she started a ceramic business in her home. For years, the neighbor ladies came two nights a week for class where they made beautiful pieces and got a release from their everyday lives. The community friendship she offered was more meaningful than she knew. She learned to crochet and sew, making beautiful dresses for her girls and crocheting afghans to keep those she loves warm. Visitation will be Monday, November 6, from 3:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Cumberland Chapels, 8300 W Lawrence Ave, Norridge. Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. at the funeral home. Entombment Maryhill Catholic Cemetery.
