Betty was one of the best students I had in the H&R Block class. She was such an intelligent person I ever met. Her knowledge in tax prep made her the best in the class. As her instructor she made me proud. Loosing her breaks my heart😭😭😭😭😭😭

Betty and during the summer months when not in school would ride our bike on Godfree (sp?) Bottom road and would go clear to Miller's feedlots. Lots of other memories going trick or treating together. We had crochet in 4H together. What fun we had. We tried to see each other as often as we could after graduation. Sure going to miss you. I wish I had photos of us growing up but lost them all in a flood. But I still have those memories. ❤❤❤
