Best and loving wishes to Miss Betty's family. I'll always remember her as a spirited, delightful advocate for Arlington Forest UMC and its flock of Christians. When she was able -- not that long ago -- she welcomed people into the sanctuary on Sundays. She was happy to engage in conversation with friends and strangers during our after church fellowship gatherings. I will miss her, but look forward to meeting up in heaven.

Pattie and Sharon,
I am so sad about your mom's passing. Betty was a good friend and fellow church member. I took over as Worship Chair when she stepped down. I always looked to her for advice. I have such neat memories of her birthday party at Olive Garden when she turned 90. May Betty rest in peace - she will always be remembered.
