My sincere condolences to Henry and all the family. May you be comforted knowing that Betty is now in the presence of her Lord and Saviour.
I will miss seeing Betty’s sweet smiles and getting her warm hugs when visiting at Keir Care. My memories of her stretch way back in time when she and I shared a desk in Neerlandia’s elementary school.

Dear Gelderman and Fisher familes,
I remember Betty as a person with a lovely personality, always greeting me and others with a smile.
I have one of her beautiful dried flower pictures my Mom, Ida Koch, bought from her.
May God hold you all in his loving arms during this sad time.

Dear family. My sincere condolences to you all. Heaven has indeed gained another saint! Betty always had such a bubbly spirit! When our church family went to Keir for a service she sang so with such joy! Your dad will sure miss her. Your dad has a beautiful voice too! May our heavenly Father sustain you all.

Pearl and family. So sorry to hear of your loss of your Mom. Your Mom was such a nice lady..... I always enjoyed our visits when I went to visit my Mom. A loss in this time of Covid sure makes the loss so much harder. Your Dad will miss your Mom so much.
May all the memories help you through the days ahead.

Thank you for your compassion during our conversation before my parents farm auction. Hope we meet again one day and can have another visit.
Sincerely Judy Hove

Dear Gelderman Family,
So very sorry for your loss. Betty always attended the Bethlehem Market which I organized, to sell her pressed flower pictures. I enjoyed her friendly personality and pleasant ways.
Cherish your memories and God be with you as you grieve.
Sincere Sympathy.
