Betty Lou Haynes

September 10, 1943 — August 2, 2022

Betty Lou Haynes, 78, of Nederland, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, Tuesday, August 2, 2022. Betty was born in Ebenezer, Louisiana on September 10, 1943, to the late Elia (Dupuis) Dugas and Freddie Dugas.
Betty’s family moved to Texas where she grew up in Port Neches. She was a resident of Nederland for 58 years where her and her husband raised their children. They were also blessed beyond measure to watch their grandchild and great grandchildren enjoy their home place. Betty was a parishioner of St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church and truly devoted to her Catholic faith. Betty was a loving and generous person, who was always ready to lend a helping hand. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She had a love for camping, fishing, helping her husband harvest produce from the garden, picking berries and making delicious jellies. Betty loved to laugh and drink Big Red. Her kind and generous heart will be missed by all.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Elia (Dupuis) Dugas and Freddie Dugas; son, Kevin Dean Haynes; and sister, Dorothy Lynn.
