Betty DeLap was born on July 23, 1927, in Rosedale, Mississippi, to Ira Alldredge and Bess Alldredge.   She started her career as an assistant to John McPherson Sr. at The Federal Land Bank. In 1960, she began a 33-year career at Delta State University as an Administrative Assistant to the President.  She then opened The Linen Closet bed, bath, and gift shop with her daughter, Lynn. Betty loved playing bridge and served in several civic organizations in Cleveland.  Her warm smile and personality made her perfect for all things that she achieved.  She was a loving mother, and a second mother to many of her children’s friends. Affectionately known by them as Aunt Betty says it all.
