Betty Lou Newman Carmichael, age 89, passed away on Monday, January 25, 2021, at the Valley Park Retirement Center in Holts Summit.

She was born on October 2, 1931, in East St. Louis, Illinois the daughter of John Thomas Newman and Corena Pritchett Newman. She was the youngest of five children.

Some of Betty's employment in Jefferson City were with the Ramada Inn, Modem Business Systems and in 1971, running the business office for Carmichael Datsun/Fiat, which eventually became Carmichael, Inc.

Bettys' Family---Your Mom was the first person I met when I came to Jeff. My husband to be at the time was starting his job at MBS.
She took me to lunch that day at the ECCO. Many years later I had the pleasure of seeing your parents when they moved to Charleston Place Townhomes. It was a joy to see them--I still can hear your Mom Laughing. She was here for a while after your Dad passed. I'm sure Ralph gave her some "grief" in the days at MBS. May she rest in peace as she is with your Dad again in Heaven.
