Betty Cantley

Betty Earl Cantley, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away July 10, 2016 at her home near Smiley. She was born on July 8, 1930 in Houston. Betty worked tirelessly by her husband’s, Kennon’s, side to build their poultry and cattle business. After her husband’s passing, she continued to run the ranch until her health no longer allowed it. Her greatest legacy was and will continue in providing a safe, productive, loving environment for the ladies of the Smiley Community Group Homes. She has been a “guardian angel” over the homes for the past 31 years. The first group home was built by Kennon and Betty, along with Dr. Ken Gray of Austin, in 1985.

She loved to hunt in South Texas and especially “relished” in bringing in “The Big One” to show the boys. Her lawn mowing was her therapy, and if you saw her on the mower, you had better turn around and come back another time.
