Betty it was an honor working for you and with you. Betty was my first to meet along with Janice. They were interviewing me for the Wellstar Douglas Gift Shop. Back in 2012, with my application I wrote a letter. Betty was more interested in what I wrote than what I could actually do. I was hired and soon became her Friend along with the other lovely Friends I made. Betty always made a point to stop in the gift shop to check on me. She would hold my hand or just touch it as we would talk. Always so kind and curious about those around her. I moved away almost 4 years ago and sad I did not get the chance to see her. Resting in Peace I know she will be the Angel by her Families side. Love you Mrs. Betty!

When I first met Betty, we were both at the Cultural Arts Center. Years later, I started volunteering at WellStar Douglas Hospital. By then Betty had retired, her legacy continues. It was a pleasure to know her, and try to volunteer by her example.....

My heartfelt prayers and sympathy to the Noland family. I loved Betty, and will miss her always. My first husband, Ken, who was an attorney in Douglas County, and I became friends with Bob and Betty when we moved here in 1976. She was so kind, sweet and caring and those qualities touched me personally in July 1981. I broke my knee in several places in a NC horse riding accident and was transferred to Douglas General, where I stayed for a week. About the 5th day of lying in the hospital bed, an ANGEL unexpectedly came into my room and said, “Would you like me to wash your hair? It will make you feel better.” I tearfully said please, and the bond that came from Betty’s caring act has lasted a lifetime. Rest In Peace, Betty, and know that all of us who loved you are grateful that God placed you in our lives.

Wow, what can I say? Mrs. Betty Noland, I didn't know that when you called me on Monday, March 29, 2021 to be transferred to room service that this would be the last time I would speak to you. I would like to thank you for being so kind to me. For always having a kind encouraging word and your gentle spirit to go along with it. You would always take the time to ask me how I was doing when you called; and when you were here at the hospital volunteering, you would always stop by the PBX (Operator's window) to say hello with that warm smile of yours, that also made me smile. You are a staple in this community that will be missed. May Comfort, Peace and Blessings be with your family and friends. Continue to rest in God's loving arms. I miss and love you. Cynthia

Sweet Betty! When my husband, Robert, and I first moved to Douglasville from California, we met Betty and her dear sister Ruth through my work at the Cultural Arts Council, where they were both dedicated volunteers. Right from the start, Betty treated us like old friends - kind, loving, funny and so incredibly gracious. She embraced us and made us feel so welcome and so much a part of things. She told us wonderful stories about her life, and about life in Douglasville, with that incredible twinkle in her eye. We will remember her smile and her laugh forever. We love you, Betty.

Oh my goodness, what an extraordinary person! Sam, your Mom could light up a room with her smile and grace. A truly sweet soul. If we had more people like your Mom, the world would solve so many problems! She could talk to anyone, and make them feel like she really cared about them.
We lost our Dad, Jack Richardson, 8 years ago and it gets easier with time, but we will always miss them.
Our deepest condolences go out to your family.
