Betty Lou Pratt, age 82, of Quincy, died on Friday, January 10, 2020, at 5:27 pm in Blessing Hospital.

Betty was born March 21, 1937 in Tipton, Indiana, the daughter of Oral and Jeannette Harrell Burget. She married Rev. Henry B. Pratt on June 9, 1957 in the Kempton Christian Church in Kempton, Indiana.

Betty graduated in 1955, as class valedictorian, from Scircleville High School in Scircleville, Indiana. She then attended business college in Kokomo, Indiana. Betty was employed at the State Street Store, and she retired from Shopko in 2004.

She was a member of Faith Journey Church in Quincy.

Betty was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. In later years, she enjoyed spending time with her friends at Breakfast Club and playing games at the Quincy Senior & Family Resource Center. Betty also enjoyed watching sports, especially basketball.
