Betty loved and was loved by all the neighbors. She has been friends with our family since the 1950's. She lived next door to my grandparents and my parents. She mowed my mom's grass for the last time in October. She will be missed but never forgotten because of all the good deeds she did here on Earth but she is now getting her final and greatest reward in heaven. We are praying for all of her family and friends.
