Betty Harmon Wilshire

December 17, 1946 — August 16, 2022

Betty Harmon Wilshire also known as “Mimi” or “Granny”, of Oak Hill passed away peacefully at her home on August 16, 2022.

Betty was born December 17, 1946 in Minden, West Virginia. She was the daughter of the late William and Mildred Perry Harmon.

She was preceded in death by the love of her life Darrell on January 2, 2016.

Betty worked at Steen and Miller in Oak Hill for many years until she retired. She saw an opportunity when Wal-Mart in Oak Hill opened and eventually became personnel manager until she officially retired to enjoy traveling and riding Harleys with Darrell.

Anyone that knew Betty knew she loved her family. She would drop anything if she knew one of the boys was coming over and make a five-course meal. She was known to the family for her fried potatoes and homemade biscuits and gravy.

Those left to cherish her memory are her sons Donald and Laura Jo of Georgetown, Kentucky; Paul and Terri of Fayetteville and Darrell “Boo” and Missy of Oak Hill; six grandchildren Chris, Ashley, Kyle, Megan, Tyler and his wife Ashlyn, Scott Mikel and his fiancé Kierra Humphrey as well as seven great-grandchildren Aiden, Case, Easton, Alli, Sophia, Addie and Aspyn.

She also is survived by her brother William “Shorty” and Patricia Harmon; sisters Rebecca and Robert Wood; Beverly and Tom Oxley; Bonnie Harmon and Susan Ball.
