One of Betty’s lifelong passions was bowling. She spent almost 60 years working in administrative positions at Parkway Lanes and Bowl Madison (formerly known as Madison Bowling Center). She spent countless hours volunteering for women’s and youth bowling organizations in Huntsville and the State of Alabama. To commemorate Betty’s life and dedication to the sport and all the individuals she met throughout the years, the family will be hosting a celebration at Bowl Madison (8661 Hwy 72W; Madison, AL 35758) from 5:00 pm until 7:30 pm on Tuesday August 8, 2023. You are invited to bring your bowling ball and shoes (or use those provided at the bowling center) for open bowling, appetizers and snacks, and beverages to reminisce with the family and bowling community from throughout the years.
Betty Faye Ratliff will forever be remembered as a kind-hearted and loving individual. Her presence will be greatly missed, but the memories she leaves behind will continue to bring comfort and joy to all who knew her. May her soul rest in peace.
