Obituary of Betty Lee Huddleston
Please share a memory of Betty to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Betty Lee Huddleston passed away on October 17, 2022, in Camas, WA at 74 years of age. Born as Betty Lee Littleton on November 24, 1947, in Shreveport, LA, she would live her adolescence in Death Valley, CA before moving to and settling in Washougal, WA 57 years ago. Washougal is where she met and married one of the true loves of her life, Bud Huddleston, her late husband of 29 years. He helped raise her four independent and loving daughters and two of her grandkids. Together they owned and operated the Camas-Washougal Shell Station and were well known in the community. After they sold the service station, Betty purchased the beloved gift shop A Touch of Camas, where she continued being a well-loved community member. Over the years you'd find Betty on the banks of the Washougal reeling in a trophy steelhead with her perfectly manicured nails, shopping in Portland with dear friends, enjoying the shops and ski slopes of Europe, dancing in Mexico, hosting sleepovers and movie nights, or maybe playing a lively game of cards or dominoes. But of all things she loved to do, quite possible her favorite and what filled her heart the most was family gatherings, Birthdays, holidays, and good ol' Sunday dinners, she always loved and was fiercely proud of the family she created and all the characters that dotted her life because of them. After gracefully giving much of herself to everyone else for so long, it was time to do something just for Betty so a decade ago she spread her snowbird wings and headed back to the California desert for the cold months. This is where she met the last true love of her life, Bill Starkey. Being with Bill brought out a light youthfulness that was evident and special. Together they made a home in Desert Hot Springs, their own little oasis. Betty would envision something; Bill would bring it to life. They were a true partnership right up to the last moments. Our family is grateful for the steadfast love she found in him and that he chose to be her partner through the better part of the last 10 years. Betty is survived by Fiance, William F. Starkey of Centralia, Wisconsin; daughters, Marie (Denny) McClintic of Vancouver, Washington, Gena Barlow of New Braunfels, Texas, Debbie Huddleston of Washougal, Washington, Brandy Audette of Washougal, Washington; she raised 2 grandchildren, Ryan Williams of Granbury, Texas, Brittini DeVault of Washougal, Washington; 6 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren. Betty was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Marvin "Bud" Huddleston. It was Betty's wish to have a private gathering for family. We know how much she meant to many so in lieu of a service, donations to the Make A Wish Foundation can be made in her honor. When asked if she had a particular non-profit that she supported she said, "pick something that helps with cancer". With her love of the children in her life, grown and otherwise, we feel that helping grant a sick child's wish would best honor her memory.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Betty Huddleston, please visit our Tree Store
