Bette Jo, I spent pleasant hours with your mom and dad and "Sassy" the Corgi when they were our neighbors on Hiawatha Blvd. Your mom loved to have me bring our two Corgis over for a visit both inside the house and outside in the yard. Betty told me about her upbringing in Ohio, about her love for her children and grandchildren, and we never seemed to be at a loss of things to discuss. She was graciously opinionated and I liked her honesty. Thanks for choosing such a beautiful photo of her that shows that vibrant smile.

I worked with Betty at Dr. Schoen's office. I remember she was so efficient. I could never match up to that :D:D Betty was also a lot of fun to work with and she loved her family. I know it has been rough and now you can all have peace.

BJ and family,
I am so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I have wondered about her over the years. I understand the heartache you have been going through for the past several years. May God bless you and the entire family.
