Betty Sue Beshers Featherston was born June 11, 1954, to Tommy Newton Beshers and Stella (Stephens) Beshers in the small town of Tahona. She was the eighth child and the fourth girl. She attended Panama schools and made many a lifetime friend. She passed from this life on May 13, 2014, in Fort Smith, Ark., after a sudden illness. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, William T. Featherston II; sister, Wanda Lee English; and brothers, Harvey and Leon Beshers. Â
She is survived by three daughters, Kelly Holson and husband Michael of Waynoka, Carla Featherston of Hodgen and Lori Jimenez and husband Florencio of Heavener. She is also survived by five grandchildren who she called her pride and joy, McKenna, McKayla, Maegan, Taitum and Brianna. They believed she hung the moon and they were her stars. She is also survived by her brothers, Charles Beshers and wife Mary Ann of Panama, Eugene Beshers and wife Jeanette of DeKalb Texas, and brother-in-law Odell English of Jenny Lind, Ark.; sisters, Barbara Davis and husband Johnny of Sheridan, Ark., and Brenda Newby and husband Taylor of Poteau; numerous special nieces and nephews and her longtime best friend, Peggy Pendergrass. They sure kept the phone lines hot bragging about their grandkids.
