Dear Lewis family,
I was so saddened to learn of your Mom's passing. Betty and I had not seen each other in many years, but I thought of her often, and exchanged photos on Facebook. We worked together at GDSI for years. Betty was a true friend, caring, supportive and an inspiration to everyone who knew her. I often admired her eagerness to finish typing all the resumes for the day!
Betty was a very special friend and I cherish the years we worked together.
Love you Betty.

To the Lewis Family,

We are sending our deepest sympathies, as Betty was a family friend for over 30 years. She was a sincere friend to my mother during their "marathon shopping Saturdays," or a family function or just some random events for either one of our families. We always enjoyed Betty's company no matter the occasions. She was one of the best and will be deeply missed. Please keep in contact via email @ or phone.

Aunt Betty was a wonderful friend to my mom for over 75 yrs. They met in elementary school and stayed friends throughout high school even though they went to different ones! My mom always spoke so highly of her lifetime friend and maid of honor!
I will miss her positive outlook and her great smile. I’m so happy I got to spend time with Aunt Betty!
