Betty Tanner

On Monday, May 6, 2024, Betty Lou Tanner, 86, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was preceded in death by her husband, Carl Glen Tanner Sr; daughter, Monica Lynn Williams; parents, Edgar “Red” Ferguson and Opal Mae Harvey Bryant; stepfather, James “Elmer” Bryant; three brothers, Don Ferguson, Harrell Ferguson, and Earl Ferguson; and two sisters, Ellen Adcock and Anna May Willis.
She is survived by her son, Glen Tanner and wife Pam, of Cabot; two brothers, Jimmy Bryant (Cindy) and Lewis Bryant (Ann); six grandchildren, Erin Ragan (Casey), Sarah Martin (Luke), Samantha Harris (Shea), Kayla Brown, Matthew Williams, and Bradley Tanner; eleven great-grandchildren, and a number of nieces and nephews.

Betty was born June 9, 1937, in England, Arkansas. She was a loving wife, mother, Mamaw, sister, aunt, and friend. She was a member of First Baptist in Cabot. Betty was a jokester by nature. If she picked on you, you knew she liked you. She loved to spoil her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be dearly missed.
