Betty Jean Lee-Rinehart, 89, of Allen, Oklahoma, passed away Sunday, September 18, 2022 in Allen. Betty was born February 15, 1933 to her parents James and Jewel Burke in Olney, Oklahoma.
As a young woman, she had two children, whom she adored greatly, son Larry Don Lee, and daughter Sheron Fitzgerald. She spent most of her working life as a proud homemaker and stay at home mother, ensuring that her children always had a lovely place to call home. Betty also found joy spending time harvesting her garden, for everything she grew, she would can and store away for another day.
