She worked for various radio stations in SAN ANTONIO, and worked as a radio personality in BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION for about five years in the early '80s, as well as stations in McALLEN and AUSTIN, TX.

Her daughter, SAUNDRA REYNA, told the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS her mother had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but BRITTON's death came unexpectedly.
REYNA posted on her mother's FACEBOOK account: "Many of you knew that BETSY was sick and had some bad health issues. But despite them, she was a happy, loving, caring, giving, hopeful and amazing person, friend, mother, grandmother and daughter. She didn't let her health issues stop her from too much. She always tried and gave it all she could. Her legacy is mind-blowing."
