Betty and Louie lived next door to us on Saratoga Drive in Evansville and we could not have had better neighbors. Betty always had a smile on her face and was a fantastic friend to all the children. She would read stories to them, play games, and have them on her patio for special treats. She even taught our daughter how to tie her shoes. We watched the Tribute Video and were surprised when we saw the picture of her in the yard with the kids swing set and above ground pool in the background (it brought back a lot of memories). We have kept in contact over the years with notes in Christmas cards. She was a special lady and will not be forgotten. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family.

I never saw Aunt Betty just set a do nothing , from time she awoke she was always cleaning, cooking, gardening . When she did take a break to watch General Hospital ( she got me into th that soap I still watch it today) she was always sewing making leisure suits for Uncle Louis, or dad. A amazing seamstress.
I will never forget your laugh, and smile
You always be ill n my heart. I Love you Aunt Betty 1💕💕😪🌺
