The Passing of Betty Claud

The VirtualBoxwell Team is sad to announce the passing of Betty Claud. Betty was the wife of Ranger Willie Claud. Born in 1933, Betty married Willie Dean in 1958. The two Centerville natives were the first rangers at Grimes Canoe Base when it opened. They moved to Boxwell in 1978 and remained there for the next 16 1/2 years. They had two children, Lori and Brian. Lori was well known among the Murrey families and Brian became an assistant ranger. After Willie retired in 1995, the couple moved back to Centerville. Willie passed in 2008 and Betty remained active in her community and church. She passed early on Friday, April 20, 2023. She was 89 years old.

Services will be held this Friday, April 28, 2023, at 11:00 AM at Charles L. Nickell Memorial ParkĀ in Centerville. The complete obituary can be found here:!/Obituary
