If ever there was a person to remember, Betty was one of the most beautiful. She brightened any room she entered, touched our hearts every time we saw her, and loved with her entire self. This incredibly sweet soul will be dearly missed. While our hearts are broken, and we mourn her passing, Betty is surely looking lovingly down on us all, smiling from her spot in heaven.
Love,
The Jurch Family

Dear Betty, (Mom) as I called you.
I will always remember our special lunches together. Most of all I will remember us going to the estate sales, we could not wait to find something special like a cat statue or a neat piece of jewelry.
I would always haggle over a special item; mom would want and get her a great deal!
You would always say " you have a knack for negotiating".
She called me her "redheaded pit bull", when someone would try and take advantage of her good nature.

I will miss you each day until we see each other again.

May you rest in peace.
Love always,
your daughter in-law
