Betty, aka "Grandma Princess" was a loving, caring lady, that I felt blessed to know...her family meant everything to her. She loved them all deeply. A beautiful lady inside and out...thoughts and prayers for everyone who knew and loved her.

I was honored to grow up with Betty in my church. It was an honor to know her & a blessing to get to carry her Bible & bags for her in & out of church when the occasion presented itself. Never saw her without a smile & her selfless nature was one to be admired. I’ve never known a stronger prayer warrior and I’m grateful to have been a part of Betty’s church family.
