Betty “Bet” Lou Sablan, 48, of Mansfield, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2023, after a brief illness.
Bet was born in Guam on April 5, 1975, to Juan and Anna Sablan. Bet met the love of her life, Howard Dewalt, on June 24, 2013, and the two of them brought their beautiful daughter into this world on February 27, 2014. Bet was so proud of her family and loved spending time with them every chance she could. She enjoyed camping and throwing darts but loved cheering for her honey, her brothers, her Jay Bryant, and her Mark every Friday night. Bet had a special bond with her god daughter, Destinee, who was her pride and joy but also with everyone that was blessed to know her. Bet had a unique laugh that just made everyone happy, and we will all remember her famous saying “You better ask somebody”.
