Betty was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve met : I had the pleasure of knowing her at Catawba Valley Living : she always had a big smile on her face and always made my day . I really enjoyed seeing her every day and helping her when she needed it . My heart hurts as I will miss her but I know she is looking over us all .
My prayers and thoughts are with her family
