Betty has held a dear place in my heart from the 1st day we met. She has been such a special Grandma to my children Raechel and Ross, I know that Betty has lead a long and faithful life and shared her love and faith with all of her kids, grandkids and great-grandchildren. So many notes and cards full of love and encouragement that she sent and the special memories they have shared will be treasured by her family and friends. My deepest condolences to each of you. I know you find comfort in knowing she is Heaven bound. Love you all.

Dear Becky, Rodney, Steve, and Dana,
I am so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. She was such a sweet lady. My mom told me that your mom and Becky were my 1st non-family visitors when I was born. I have missed seeing her since her move to Florida. I won't be able to come to the funeral but my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
In Christian love, Nancy DuBois

As I was telling Dana earlier, Aunt Betty was such a sweet lady. While visiting with her throughout the years, she always had a smile on her face. I remember our nice visits together when she would come to my Dad's house (Aunt Betty's brother-in-law) during the holidays. She was always willing to listen with great eagerness when I had not seen her in a while. Aunt Betty had beautiful children and, when I was at Aunt Betty's house, I always felt welcomed and loved by her and I had fun playing with my cousins. Her loving presence will be missed. My comfort is that Aunt Betty's trials in this life are now over and, in Heaven, she is now living a life of blessedness, happiness, pain free, and full of pure joy FOREVER celebrating in the arms of Her Savior Jesus Christ our Lord to the glory of the Father! One day Aunt Betty, I will see you on the other side! - Debbie Whitmer
