Betty Ruth Goodson Cuti

Betty Ruth Goodson Cuti departed this earthly life on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at the age of 87. She spent her final days in her home surrounded by her loving husband, children and grandchildren.


Betty was born on September 2, 1933 in Ozark, Alabama to the late Macon Berry Goodson and Essie Davis Clark.

She met Dominick Joseph Cuti, her husband of 66 years, in 1952 when Dominick was drafted and stationed at Fort Rucker Army Base in Ozark. Dominick and Betty crossed paths while performing music for a local radio station. They were married on March 20, 1954 and started their family in Louisiana. Betty was a resident of Norco since 1954 and a longtime member of the Church of Christ.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by sisters Louise Grant and Voncile Pelnarsch, brother Curtis Goodson and infant daughter Pamela Jane Cuti.

Betty is survived by her husband, Dominick, and five children: Dennis Cuti, Patricia Hamilton, Linda Lovetro, Brenda Wild (Gary) and Diane Robichaux (Lynn).

She was a doting grandmother to Bret Lovetro Jr. (Katie), Britney Piske (Ryan), Justin Frederick (Jackie), Michael Hamilton Jr. (Brittany), Chad Wild, Jillian Wild, Brooke Cantrelle (Matthew), Brandon Robichaux, Brianne Robichaux and Leah Morgan Frey (Jamie). Betty leaves behind a legacy that will be carried on by her 12 great-grandchildren: Cyan, Phoenix, Sadie, Natalie, Valerie, Stella, Eleanor, Sebastien, David, Lillian, Keith and Evelyn. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Betty was adored by all for her pure heart and innocent spirit. In addition to devoting her life to God, she dedicated her every breath to loving and caring for her family. A love and adoration so intense, it was always reciprocated in full. She was the definition of selflessness. She knew no jealousy, held no grudges, judged not a soul. She was God’s vision – love in its purest form. Her light was so bright and evident even to strangers. She was a homemaker, often referred to as the baby whisperer and an avid gardener. She loved looking at her flowers and enjoyed sitting outside watching the birds. A true angel on earth, her family takes comfort in knowing she finally has her wings.

Private services will be held Wednesday, November 18 at H.C. Alexander Funeral Home, located at 821 Fourth St. in Norco. Condolences and special memories can be shared at www.HCAlexander.com.
