Betty and I met at the New Members Class at First Presbyterian in Georgetown and became such good friends. I will miss her laughter, joy, friendship, bridge playing and her stores of her kitties! What good memories she left. May God comfort you at this time.

What wonderful memories I have of the pleasant times Betty and I shared in both Georgetown and Ruidoso. She was such an inspiration to me because she truly lived her faith. She lifted everyone up, and we were all the better for having Betty as our friend. Knowing that she is with God is a comfort for us all. Blessings, sweet Betty!
