Betty Lee Goodlett passed away in Phoenix, Ariz., on March 15, 2011. She was born May 2, 1932, to Dewie and Virginia Frazer, in Wetumka, Okla. The family moved to southern Calif., where she met and married Clifford Lee Goodlett, Jr., in 1951.

Betty and Cliff moved to Ashland, Ore., in 1959, where they raised their four boys and Betty's younger brother, Jim Frazier. Betty may have been little, but she had a mighty voice and could be heard above everyone, cheering her boys on in all their endeavors.

She worked at Pacific Northwest Bell and later for A-1 Answering Service. Betty and Cliff then bought the Brownell Motel. Upon retirement in 1995, they moved to Apache Junction, Ariz., where they lived until moving into the Life Care Center, in Phoenix, Ariz.

She is survived by her husband, Clifford, Jr.; four sons, Clifford III, of Central Point, Ore., Frank, of Phoenix, Ariz., David, of Salem, Ore., and Clarence, of Phoenix, Ariz.; her sisters, Mary Pagenkopf, of Florida, Patsy Carver and Carolyn Elvington, of Calif.; brother, Jim Frazier, of Medford, Ore; her beloved nine grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; a grandson, Nathan; and her brother, Robert. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
