Betty was such a wonderful lady. Betty always greeted everyone with a smile and had such a wonderful personality. She always had a kind word to say when she would see you at Belk's or around town- she will be missed. Thinking and praying for the family at this time.

Will always think of Ma Betty as the best shopper and for having such a great sense of humor. A quarter will never pass my hand without thinking of her. She was also a superb cook ...often having meals prepared at 5 a.m. so she did not miss shopping spree at Belk . My sympathy to each of you. You are in my prayers. Love, Diane J
