Mrs. Betty Bartlett Faulkner, 85, originally of Lanett, Alabama passed away on Tuesday, June 29th, 2021, in Auburn, Alabama. She was born on October 26th, 1935, in Lanett to the late Homer E. Bartlett, Sr. and Nellie Tidwell Bartlett.

Mrs. Faulkner was married to her high school sweetheart for more than sixty-five years and raised five children. After the children were grown, she became interested in genealogy. She would visit old cemeteries and research old records. Ultimately, she traced branches of her family tree to the early 1600s and each immigration to America. Later in life, she enjoyed spending time in her garden and loved watching the flowers bloom each spring.
