I first met Betty 51 years ago when my family moved next door to the Schenks. What wonderful neighbors were the Schenks and Betty was always such a pleasure. I am glad we were able to keep in touch for so many years. My thoughts and prayers are with Cathy and Teresa. Betty will be greatly missed but many fond memories will remain forever.

John and I are very blessed to work for this family and Betty for over 24 years me and John over 30. My 1st time around her was when she asked me to meet her and Cathy in Myrtle Beach for a weekend boy was I scared to death.... But what a great weekend and what a truly remarkable lady. She always welcomed us into her home when we visited and was an amazing hostess. Everyone's life has been blessed to have had her in it. Teresa and Cathy we are so sorry for your loss.
