Betty Lou Grubb, 75, passed away at her home in Durham, NC, on Thursday, Sept 15, 2022.  Betty was born July 7, 1947, raised in Pulaski, VA, and graduated from Pulaski High School in 1965.

She loved her time as an Oriole and playing in the marching band.  She then moved to North Carolina where she married and raised a family.

Betty was predeceased by her extraordinary parents, Paul B. Grubb and Exie H. Grubb, and brother, Ralph D. Grubb, all of Pulaski.  She is survived by her elder son Larry “Chip” Castle Jr, younger son Scott Castle with daughter in law Sara and beloved granddaughter Avery, sister Margaret Butler, two nieces, a nephew, their families, many cousins, and friends.

She possessed a great love for music and sports but her whole world was her granddaughter, great grand nieces and nephews, and her sweet poodles, Little John and the late Abigail. She will be missed.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, October 10, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at the Highland Memory Gardens mausoleum in Dublin, VA.
