Betty Jean Stricklin of Cuba, Missouri was born Friday, November 24, 1933 at Keysville, Missouri to the union of John and Hazel (Nee: Pyatt) Reeves. She left from this life on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at Cuba, Missouri at the age of 86 years.

Betty was united in marriage to Cecil D. Stricklin on Friday, February 20, 1953 at Steelville, Missouri and to this union two daughters were born: Linda Darlene and Phyllis.

Betty worked for Convey Shoe and Brown Shoe for many years before she retired. In her younger years she enjoyed sewing and quilting. Betty spent every spring planting a gardening, all summer was spent canning and for the last few years, she would help her sister Helen with her canning.

Betty enjoyed being outside, mowing grass, splitting and stacking wood. She thought you had to burn wood for heat. She loved going to yard sales, auctions and resale shops, because she was a collector of anything and everything. One of her favorite foods was fish, especially the ones that her son-in-law Calvin would catch and then bring her the whole fish.

She treasured getting to watch her grandsons grow up. She went to every sporting event and school program that they were in. Betty was a devout in attending the Cuba Free Will Baptist Church. She was at church every time the doors opened for any special event. What she truly treasured most in life, was spending time with her family, church family and friends.

Betty is preceded in death by her parents John and Hazel Reeves; husband Cecil D. Stricklin; four brothers-in-law Jessie and wife Betty Stricklin, Norman Stricklin, Roman Stricklin and Lawrence and wife Rosie Stricklin and other family and friends.

Those who are left to treasure her memory and to continue her legacy are her loving daughters Linda Darlene Wurth and companion Don Rodgers, Phyllis and husband Calvin Murray all of Cuba; five amazing grandchildren Steve and wife Becky Stricklin of Havre de Grace, Maryland, Dillion Murray of Cuba, Collin Murray of Cuba, James and wife Ashley Rodgers of House Springs, Missouri and Nicole Bollinger of Festus, Missouri; five great grandchildren Sierra Stricklin and companion Ryan Edwards, Autumn Stricklin, Nathan Bollinger, Carter Bollinger and Vivian Rodgers; two great-great grandchildren Elena Stricklin and Isabella Edwards; two brothers John and wife Tiny Reeves of Cuba, Clarence and wife Mary Reeves of Cuba; two sisters Norma and husband Richard Bridgeman of Cuba, Helen and husband Charlie Vaughn of Cuba; sister-in-law Barbara Stricklin of Steelville, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, great-great nieces, great-great nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.
