I will always cherish the times of learning to cook Italian food with Betty and Vicki when I was married to Mike. It was a Christmas tradition to make gnocchi. I couldn’t of asked for a better Mother-in-law. Tony has been blessed to have Betty for a Grandma. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

Thank you Mike Birleffi for making that difficult call to me letting me know that mom had passed away and for being there also.

I would like to thank Dan & Vicky Schommer for being there for my mom. When she moved from her house to assisted living they were there, when it came time to move to the nursing home they were there, and in my moms final moments my sister Vicky was by her side. Thank you for all that you both did for her.

Grandma Betty, as she was affectionately known by her granddaughter Taylor! Many, many happy & treasured moments between the two of them. She is blessed to have the time she did with such a beautiful, loving grandmother who genuinely cared for her.
Thank you Grandma Betty for always making Taylor feel special and loved. She loves to the moon...and now beyond! May you RIH!

We met Betty through our longtime neighbors Dan and Vicky and our dear friends Donn and Sylvia. Betty was a sweet and loyal lady who took wonderful care of her loved ones.
Special memories include a lovely night at her house enjoying a slide show of the Big Thompson Canyon, which she loved so much and knew so well from a lifetime of travel between Greeley and Estes Park.
Betty will be remembered fondly.
