The Wagner family is very important to me. I was lucky to live one house away and growing up together was fun. Betty was like a second mom and I felt at home there except when Patty told Cinnamon to sic me. Betty called me Bobbsey and together Patty and I were the Bobbsey Twins. Betty will always hold a special place in my heart and in my memories. I will miss her and her cold water which is only funny to us. Please say hello to Cathy.

We met the Wagner family over 50 yrs ago when we first moved into the neighborhood. Our girls became long time friends and our boys had fun playing hockey together. I remember the New Years Eve parties and their trip to our cabin for a weekend, fishing in cold, rainy weather. We were lucky to have such caring, helpful, wonderful neighbors all those years. Betty, you are now with Ed, Chris and Cathy, may you RIP. Thanks for getting me hooked on Magic Puzzles. Many thoughts and prayers are with the family, may you find comfort in fond memories.

I have missed Betty this last year and will miss her forever. She and Ed and Paul and I had so many good times together over the years. We cherished their friendship. Now they are at peace with the Lord.

Betty, Jane and I are so thankful to have known you. We are cousins but it seemed to be more than that as we progressed through life. We miss you and Ed.

I am so Blessed to be part of the family with my introduction of dating Cathy and thoughout our marriage.

I remember Betty’s infectious smile - it warmed the heart. It was also nice to see Betty & Ed together.

Family was very important - enjoying good times, along with being together and there for each other during times of need and difficulties.

There were so many times spending with the family - through the time of Cathy’s going home to be with the Lord.

I am comforted that Betty is with Ed, Cathy & Chris.

May the Comfort, Peace and Love of the Lord be with the family and friends, of all those that are Blessed to know Betty and her family.
