Charles and Family, you know me as Betty Bell. I remember your mom and dad, especially Boyd when he worked at the plant. Your mom was such a beautiful lady. My condolences to you all.

Azzie was my father’s older sister. I could always see a lot of my father in her. She was a beautiful lady with a beautiful smile.
She had an infectious laugh. She enjoyed life and wanted you to enjoy it with her. She was always willing to help in any way that she could. When my daughter was going to 4-H State Congress to compete, our Extension 4-H leader wanted Beth to dress in red, white and blue. (She was doing a presentation on the Bald Eagle.) We came over and Azzie loaned her clothes from her closet. She looked very professional because you know what a sharp dresser Azzie was. That was the kind of person that Azzie was. She was loved by many and will be missed.
