Betty Lou (Cutlip) Reed, 88, of Weston, died after a long struggle with dementia, on February 18, 2020 at Bridgeport Health Care Center in Bridgeport. She was born in Buckhannon on January 17, 1932, the birthday of Benjamin Franklin, a coincidence that she always enjoyed. Her parents were Alma (Turner) Cutlip and Ernie Lee Cutlip. She met Otis Lowell Reed when both were students at Weston High School and they married on November 21, 1953.

She is survived by her daughters, Brenda Lee Reed (Weston), and Linda Louanne Reed and Linda’s husband, Travis Sanders (Philadelphia, PA). In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Lee Cutlip.

Betty enjoyed people. In Weston, she worked at Bob Davis Studios and Minnich Florists. She was a natural saleswoman who loved people. She created” Buddy Bears,” which she gave by the dozens to police, firefighters, rest homes, community groups, and friends and acquaintances. These simple bears were handstitched with love and she made nearly a thousand.

The family wishes to thank everyone at Colonial Place (Elkins) and the Bridgeport Health Care Center for their tender and affectionate care of Mrs. Reed.

There will be no services. In lieu of flowers, please send donations by check to “The Mountaineer Military Museum,” 345 Center Avenue, Weston, WV 26452, or the cat organization, ”Weston Friends of Ferals and Strays,” 10 Garton Plaza, Weston, WV 26452.

Hardman Family Funeral Home of Weston considers it an honor and a privilege to serve the family of Betty Lou (Cutlip) Reed.
