On Saturday October 16, 2021 near the mid-night hour Mayberry fans lost the lovely Betty Lynn, our much loved “Thelma Lou.” We’re going to celebrate the amazing life of Betty by talking about her long career in Hollywood and before when she was in the USO.
There are so many memories about Betty and how she impacted the lives of those around her. She had such an impact that she’s even responsible for the creation of the “Mayberry Meet-up” that Two Chairs No Waiting leads each year in Mt. Airy, NC. My trip to go and interview her for the podcast was the generation of the meet-up that has been going strong since 2013. So, Betty was drawing people together even when she didn’t realize she was doing so.
This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Betty Lynn.”
