Mrs. Restey was a very accomplished woman, she started out working at her hometown hospital and volunteering as a EMT. She started in the business office of the hospital and was soon promoted to the Office Manager. It didn’t take her long to rise beyond that and become one of the most sought-after IT HealthCare Consultants in the country. She would continue to work as a consultant until her retirement in 2012.

She was proud that she was self-taught, she said “With hard work and dedication you could go anywhere and do anything you set your mind to.”

Mrs. Restey was the adventures type, becoming a pilot at the age of 29, skydiving and sailing. She was truly in her element when she had the three B’s “Boats, Beaches and Bonfires.” When she wasn’t exploring and traveling with John to places like Alaska, Panama City and this past year New Zealand, you could find her snuggled up with a good book, surfing Netflix with John or spending time with her two cats and two dogs.

She will forever be remembered as a loving wife, sister, aunt and friend to so many.

    John, Betty was really one who enjoyed being outdoors and was such a fun, outgoing person. Thank heavens y’all were able to enjoy retirement early. May God Bless You and the family and may your memories help in the days ahead. Even though we are living in Fairhope, Alabama, now, we will remember you and Betty in our prayers.

    Betty was a friend of ours (the Eufaula Alabama bunch) for many years, where we also shared some really great memories, as well as having shared many wonderful friends in our Hospital, our circle, and our community. Betty and John was very comforting in the recent loss of one of Betty’s closest friends, Mary Moran, in June, 2017.
    Myself, as well as a large host of friends, neighbors, and coworkers, want to extend our sincere sympathy to John and Betty’s family for your loss of such a wonderful and compassionate person. Our prayers are that your wonderful memories of Betty will comfort your grief now and in the days ahead. May God bless all of you.
