Interview: Betsy Best

Description

Betsy's daughter, Leslee, interviewed her mother. Their conversation spanned from the first time Betsy met her future husband, Glenn Best, by catching a ride with him from Wasta to Wall, SD to the day Glenn passed away with Betsy remarking, "I want to go too." Glenn later went on to become sheriff of Pennington County and held that position for 23 years. Glenn and Betsy lived in the county jail when they were first married.
