Was so shocked to read about my dear friend, Betty.
We worked together for years at Washington Elementary School in Mt. Lebanon Pa.
She will always be one of the finest, sweetest, and wonderful friends I have ever met in my life. I was sad when she moved to Fla., but, was happy for her....as she seemed to love it there and enjoyed going fishing with Dale and friends and seemed to make friends at her church and neighborhood. She always was so proud of her whole family.
I will miss her so much.....but, she will never leave that place in my heart that I will aways have as I will always love her. Til we meet again in the spiritual realm, Dear Betty. Love, Jane Hutton

My husband and I always enjoyed seeing Betty, usually meeting on our " dog walks". Betty was one of our favorite neighbors! Lesley, Craig and Donna our thoughts and prayers are with you.

When I visited your home at college she was the sweet, quiet, kind and thoughtful host and I always felt welcomed.
