She graduated from Allen High School and then attended East Central College in Ada. In 1946, she married Aaron Walker, a Lieutenant in the Army Air Corps, and between 1947 and 1955 they had five sons. Over the course of a 36 year career as a military officer's wife, she lived in various locations around the world, including two tours in Germany, several years in Hawaii, plus Bangkok, Thailand and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Their last military post was at the Presidio in San Francisco, where they retired in 1979. They lived in Norman 1974-1976 where Aaron served as Professor of Military Science at the University of Oklahoma. In the mid 1980's she began her second career when they bought a house on the central Florida coast in Satellite Beach and invested in their son Bruce's ongoing skateboard manufacturing and distribution business. Producing skateboards under the Walker Skateboards label, Betty served as Office Manager and Bookkeeper for over 18 years. She also served as a Nurse volunteer at various times over the years.
