Betty is NOT legally related to Edgar.   Being that it is her current husband's son from his first marriage and assuming that he has visitation rights.....Edgar might refer to her as Betty or mother out of respect.   Also depends upon Edgar's age when the 2nd marriage occurred.  Was Edgar a child or adult?  Also different scenario IF Betty adopted Edgar.  Also depends upon what year you are referring - in the 1940s children did not call adults by their first name.  In the 2000s first names are accepted by most adults.
