“I’ve just always made snow angels with my kids and everything,” she said. “So I didn’t want to be a big wheel. I just wanted to make an angel.”

Sherry Spangler, Betty’s daughter who uploaded the video to Facebook said of her mother, “She was the kind of mum who always went sled riding us, she always went swimming with us. She wasn’t the kind of mom who just sat around. And every time it would snow she’d say, ‘Come on, we’ll make snow angels.’ That’s just what we always did. We still do, even us big kids.”

The video has now been watched over a million people turning Betty into a local celebrity. “I’m glad it’s making so many people happy,” she said. “That’s what I’m here for. That’s what God’s got me here for.”
