My sincere condolences go out to all of Betty's family. Growing up in Branchville, and being a very good friend of her deceased brother, Bob, I got to know Betty very well. In fact, I babysat her oldest daughter from time to time. Betty always had a friendly demeanor. She was low key yet sure of herself. I remember thinking that she and Roy just made the perfect couple--and they did, for 63 years.
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for all the Blumhagen's. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.
