Betty Cookson, 1922-2022

Here is a very nice interview with Betty Cookson:

Here is her obituary.

Betty was a wonderful woman, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, legendary USTA volunteer, fantastic doubles player, winning numerous gold balls (a few with Rita Price…both were looking for doubles partners in the 90+ division and I put them in contact with each other…the rest was history of a gold ball variety). I remember Betty from USTA NorCal tournaments and as a national volunteer. She was still driving into her late 90s.
