A genuine lady has left us. Betty Stainton was a blessing to this world. She always remarked about the GOOD in people, always lifting people up. Her love for her beloved son, Sam, was evident to all. She was so very proud of Sam, his many extraordinary accomplishments but also on his sterling character as a man. Betty led by example, always smiling, always lifting up everyone around her with her heartfelt Christian faith. Betty was authentic in everything she did. We will miss her on this earth and we KNOW that she is laughing and rejoicing with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For Betty is absent from the body and present with the Lord. Amen and Amen
Lovingly and in Him,

My Aunt Betty (Betty Lee Forman Stainton) and our family had a very close relationship and loved each other very much. We are blessed with so many fabulous memories. We visited each other often, took trips together, celebrated holidays and many family occasions. One notable occassion was an Alaskan Cruise with Aunt Betty, Sam, Aunt Joan and the West Coast Formans. Yes, there are many great dining experiences too such as Joe's Stone Crab and the Redfish Grill in Miami. Love you, Aunt Betty. Our family thanks you for all your love!
