Betty Sue Outland Vinson

June 30, 1931 — September 6, 2021

Betty Sue Outland Vinson, of Murray, passed away on September 6, 2021, at Brookdale Murray. Betty was born in 1931 in the Elm Grove community of Calloway County Kentucky to Gatlin and Arie Outland. After she was graduated from Murray High School in 1949, she was employed four years at the Bank of Murray. In 1953, she married C.D. Vinson, Jr. of Dover, Tennessee. At that time, she became the bookkeeper for the family business, Vinson Tractor Company. Besides her parents, Betty was preceded in death by her husband.

Betty was a member of First Baptist Church for 71 years and was honored in 2017 for teaching Sunday School to children for 63 years. She was a member for many years of the Business and Professional Women's Club and a member of the Zeta Department of the Murray Woman's Club where she served as treasurer and card-sender. For many years, she also was in charge of the upkeep of Outland Cemetery.

Betty was known as a Christian, Southern genteel lady who was a very generous person and one who sent cards to almost everyone she knew. If a person had a birthday or a death in the family, he or she could expect to receive a card with a "love gift."

She is survived by a son and a daughter-in-law, Mark Alan and Lisa, of Memphis. She is also survived by three nieces, Lisha (Jimmy) Key and Shaun (Greg) Workman, Sue (Tim) Thurmond, and by Robbie and Lisa Rudolph, Mallory Rudolph Howard, and Grant Vinson Rudolph. A host of friends also survive.
