She was born September 13, 1927 in Quincy to the late Thomas Jay and Jessie Yon Peacock.

On January 1, 1951 she married Charles William (Billy) Cost and they had nearly 64 happy years together before his death in 2014.

She is survived by her daughter, Kay C. Parker and her husband, Davis, of Charlottesville, Va.; and her grandchildren, Davis and Thompson Parker, Rachel Cost Smith and Jason Pappas (Michelle); and great-grandchildren, Jase and Broxton Pappas and Rylee Trujillo. In addition, she is survived by devoted nieces, Dianne Ruff (Mike) and Jan Peacock; and a host of other relatives.

Betty Lou was the matriarch of the Peacock clan, an avid reader of history and non-fiction and a true Southern Lady.
