Cy and Betty set up their first home in Cody, Wyo., where Cy was employed at the city of Cody and Betty at the local hospital. They moved to Newcastle to join Betty’s sister Patty and her husband in their electrical business. Betty and Cy assumed the business, City Electric. As the business grew so did their family. Betty became the office manager as well as taking care of her growing family. She found time to sew dresses, take the family camping and loved celebrating birthdays and Christmas.
