Betty was born in Kings Mill, Arkansas and had been a resident of Palatka for the past 72 years, coming from Winnfield, Louisiana. In 1954 she and her husband, Martin F. Reinau, built and opened the Freezette in Palatka. In those early days it was hard on them financially but in time and with hard work it became evident they had made a good business decision. It became Martin’s Drive-In which they owned and operated from 1956 until 1965 when they sold to Jerry Doan and it became Jerry’s Drive-In. She was a member of St. James Methodist Church in Palatka where she belonged to the Rebecca Circle; the Palatka Garden Club where she belonged to the Rothchild Garden Circle and the Tillandsia Wildflower Club in East Palatka. She enjoyed flower gardening, crafts and had been active in home extension at the Agriculture Center in East Palatka.
Preceding her in death were her husband, Martin F. Reinau, and a son-in-law, Paul Turnage.
Surviving are a daughter, Joan Turnage of Palatka; a son and daughter-in-law, Bill and Susan Reinau of Wellborn, FL; four grandchildren and spouses, Angela and Wayne Addison of Butler, GA, Laura and Rob Tatum of New Port Ritchey, Renee and Jamie Mason of Akron, OH, and Paul M.
