I am shocked to see we lost ms. Betty... She was a fun loving sweet friend.... I know she's in heaven swinging from the stars. I will always remember her and our visits.... The little time she got to play cards. She kept Shirley in food ... I pray for her family that they find peace. God has He's plans. Thoughts and prayers, love Margaret....

Although I’ve only known Betty for a short 9 months, it felt like I had known her forever. She holds a special place in my heart and always will. She was loved dearly by all who came in contact with her and will be missed just as much. Rest with the angels my dear friend. Thoughts and prayers are with her family during this time.
Much Love to All,

I met Betty when I was a teenager. She always had a big smile and she'd say hey tootie fruitie. I had the pleasure of frequently working with Betty at Monument Inn and she was so much fun and full of energy. Betty worked so hard to provide for her girls, tirelessly working two jobs driving a school bus and waitressing. I truly don't know how she did it, she was always on the go. She is an inspiration to all dedicated single Mothers. She leaves behind a legacy of love, daughters Lori and Bobbi and they're beautiful families. She would tell you the most important thing is love your family don't waste a precious day being apart from them. Betty you will forever be in all our hearts and we will dearly miss you.

Who didn't love Betty? She was a warm welcoming presence in this world. She would fold you up in her arms to protect you, and kick your butt when you did wrong.
Betty had always been a positive influence in everybody's life.
I know you all will miss her...but she will be waiting for you...and she will welcome you home.
Hugs....but not as good as Betty's

Bill and I loved this dear lady. She was such a joy to be with. Betty always had a welcoming smile and a warm welcome to she and Roy’s home. Betty was not only a cousin but a friend. We would always kid each other to who was taller. When family came in town everyone would go to their home.
Rest In Peace my friend,
