Born on June 5, 1934, in Durant to the late Harvey Land and Mary Kathryn Field Campbell, Mrs. Rosson was the widow of Mr. Robert T. Rosson and a native of West, Miss. She was a graduate of Durant High School and completed her nursing degree through MS Baptist Hospital School of Nursing in Jackson. Throughout her career as a registered nurse, Betty worked in emergency care and surgery.
