Betty Jo was born on October 13, 1957 in Bardstown, KY to Edward and Josephine (Cowherd) Conner. Betty Jo was baptized and united with St. John A.M.E. Zion Church at an early age. She was a graduate of Bardstown High School in 1975. She was an employee of Advantage Plastics for the last 24 years.
Betty Jo’s greatest accomplishment was being a mother to her two sons. She enjoyed having a good a time with her family and friends. Betty Jo had a great personality and never met a stranger. She would make up stories that would have you laughing for days, even if you knew it wasn’t true. (One leg man!) She had a smile that would brighten up the room and a slick tongue to go along with it. She was a diehard Louisville Fan.
Betty Jo was preceded in death by her father, Edward Conner, her mother Josephine (Cowherd) Conner; her only brother, Robert “Boy” Conner; and two sisters, Mary Lou Conner and Edna Mae Conner.
Betty Jo is survived by her two sons; Garland “Tiger” Webb Jr. and LaQuan Webb both of Louisville; seven grandchildren, Garland “Tre”, Gregory (Hope), Geyhona, G’Vaughn, Daion, LaQuan “Tootie”, Ar’Moni; one great grandson Aubrey all of Louisville; five sisters, Elizabeth Williams, Anna Conner, Joyce Conner all of Bardstown, Sarah (Terry) Cotton of Fairfield, and Mildred Williams of Lebanon; one sister in law, Sharon (Robert) Conner of Clarksville, TN; two aunts, Betty Sue Mattingly of Bardstown and Lorine “Jay” Gunn of Lebanon; two uncles, Charles “Pig” Cowherd and Thomas Cowherd both of Lebanon; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
