Betty Dosher

April 22, 1929 — October 5, 2020


The legendary Betty Joyce Dosher, of Clovis, New Mexico is now bird watching in Heaven.

Joyce passed away on Monday October 5, 2020 at the age of 91 in Farwell, Texas.

Joyce was born on April 22, 1929 to Dad, Houston “Shorty” Theopolis Edwards and Mom, Flora Lee (Hardage) Edwards, in Seymour Texas.

Joyce attended school in Bovina Texas, and on April 12, 1947 married her best friend, Frank James Dosher Jr in Oklahoma Lane. Joyce and Frank had three children and built a life of both love and hard work as Farmer/Ranchers.

Those who love Joyce describe her as a sassy, strong willed, tough lady with a grand sense of humor. Joyce enjoyed bird watching, spending time with her horses, working on her farm, cooking, playing with her grandchildren, and then in later years, her great-grandchildren as the ultimate grandma.

Some of Joyces favorite past times were shopping for antiques, scrapbooking, taking photos, reading, collecting rocks, petrified wood, arrowheads, guns, and was always on a venture  to find a bison skull with her husband Frank.

Joyce is preceded in death by; “Shorty” Houston, Flora Edwards, Grace Edwards, Trudy Potts, Frank James  Jr Dosher, Gary Lee Jr, and Sharla Jean.

Joyce is survived by children; Gary (Janet) Dosher, Mike Dosher, and Laura Dosher.

Great grandchildren; Savanna, Matti, Ayden, Trinity, Hendrix, Braden, Adyn, Bryson, Carli, Jonathan Trinity and Elizabeth.
