Betty Lovins Primmer, 91, of Gainesville, Texas, formerly of Whitewright, Texas passed away on December 2, 2020. 

Betty was born on December 14, 1928, in Windsor, Illinois, to Forest and Marjorie Fay (Cain) Lovins.  She grew up in Windsor, Illinois with three of her four siblings:  Marjorie Lovins, Deanne Wheat and Jay Lovins. Her oldest sibling, Forest, Jr., passed away before Betty was born.   Betty was a young mother, wonderful artist and her daughters’ favorite hairdresser.  She always worked to supplement the family income. Her favorite job was as a beautician. After retirement, she discovered a deep well of artistic talent, painting in oils, sculpting in stone and even whittling and decorating bobbins for lacemaking. Her children proudly display her works of art.

Surviving are her three daughters:  Shella Chace of Ithaca, New York, Alanna Williams of Gainesville, Texas and Janeen Stroud of McKinney, Texas; eight grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. 

She was predeceased in death by her parents; husband, Ray Primmer; daughter, Kelly Dill, who passed away two days after her mother; one grandson, Jeff Odom and all of her siblings.
