Betty Sue Lynn
When Betty Sue arrived on November 26, 1948, in Washington, Loretta was just 16 and fresh from tying the knot with her husband, Doolittle “Mooney” Lynn. She was the first to make Loretta a mom, and they grew together as best friends. And just like her mom, Betty Sue was a gifted songwriter. She wrote songs under the name Tracy Lee, and a few of her songwriting credits include “Wine, Women and Song,” “Before I’m Over You,” and “The Home You’re Tearin’ Down.”
Unfortunately, Betty Sue’s life was cut short after suffering from complications from emphysema. She dies on July 29, 2013, at the age of 64. She was survived by her two daughters, Lynn Markworth and Audrey Dyer.
