Betty Faye Hollandsworth

Betty Faye Hollandsworth, 73, passed away Monday, January 3, 2022  at Woodbury Health and Rehab.  A native of Cannon Co., she was the daughter of the late William Vernon “Bunt” Cooper and Carrie Bell Morris Cooper.

A member of the Auburn Baptist church, she was a retired seamstress.  She enjoyed gardening, reading, and listening to music but most of all her children and grandchildren, as they affectionally called her “Nanny Goat”, were her true joy in life.
