I was Betty's caregiver for 4 months. It was truly learninig experience working for Betty and her son Kirk. She was very sweet and thankful. Always telling me how much she loved her family, especially her son Kirk. He was very loving and caring to her and very protective. Also very funny. Had a lot of laughs with him and his mom. Betty gave me a lot of strength watching her battle her illness. She was a very strong woman. I will never forget her. Stay strong Kirk , be happy now and live your life. Praying for you🙏🏼🙂

John knew Betty and Cecil for about 15 years seeing them every Friday night at Northville Downs race track, in rehab and their home. Lucky for me I join them in 2014. I love Betty she was so kind and sweet to me. We shared so many stories, we also have the same birthdate and celebrated birthdays and anniversaries together. We had so much fun. Thank God, memories are forever. Love & Miss you, John and Janice Bergman

I had the pleasure of getting to know Betty just over the last six months or so. She was a wonderful woman, I always enjoyed the time I got to spend with her. I really liked her laugh and they way her eyes made her look so young again when she laughed. She always had many stories to tell and even though I hadn't known her very long I could see she had a beautiful soul and enjoyed helping others in her younger years, she was always worried about someone. You will be missed Betty! I am so grateful and happy for the little bit of time I had with you! Rest in peace Betty! You will forever be in my heart!

Even though I’ve only met Mrs. Betty in 2016, I could see and feel her kindness and love. Shane has many wonderful memories and stories about his grandma, always there when he needed help. One favorite story is the breakdancing in the kitchen. On behalf of Shane, his sons Patrick and Jacob, myself, and my family we are sincerely sorry for such a great loss. She will be greatly missed.

As I traveled down memory lane, I remember all the laughs we’ve shared. It was usually my dad (Kirk) making Grandma smile with a funny joke. We’d laugh at the cats she cared for, or the deer and squirrels in the backyard doing silly things. She was very compassionate to any animal in need. She told me not too long ago, that she loved having the family together for the holidays at her home, and for me Christmas Eve will never be the same. I have many memories of visiting, one being her and Grandpa’s love of puzzles. I think anyone who has ever visited had probably helped place a puzzle piece or two on the card table. Then when it was completed, they’d date it, write a memory, and move on to another. They had completed most of their puzzles several times over the course of their long marriage. Grandma also enjoyed reading and sharing angel stories. Now she can be the angel in her own story. Grandma, you will be missed, but the good times will always be in my heart.

Ma was born to George (Albert ) and Violet Malcom on April 6th , 1930 in Ypsilanti , Mi. She had one sister, Jean. She married Cecil Welch and had sons , Mark and Kirk , also 5 grandchildren. She worked at Ford Motor Co. , University of Michigan , and supported my Dad and his business for many years. She was also the best Homemaker (Mother ) anyone could ask. She was second Mom to a lot of my friends as well as my brother's. She and my Dad made sure we saw all of the lower 48 states traveling on vacation in the 60's. She attended all of our school events and enjoyed the outdoors. She loved all dogs and cats and put up with the other critters I brought home. She took great care of her parents in their later years and made sure all their needs were met with love and kindness. She was a longtime member of the Ann Arbor Country Club with my Dad and had a lot of nice friends through there. She also bowled in a mixed league with that group. She will be missed by all!
