I have known Betty my entire life . I have many memories from camping /boating trips as well as her coming to our house for card club night with the ladies. She always had a smile on her face and I just loved her laugh. It was contagious. My thoughts and prayers to all the family. I hope she is still having Happy Hour everyday. Betty, I raise a glass of wine to you.

I'm so sorry to ready this. I first knew Betty and her boys from Lake Santee in the early 70's. When I was a teen, I knew her through boating trips to Lake of the Ozark's. She was always such a pretty lady, and so sweet. Thinking of you all and praying for you during this difficult time. I'm so very sorry for your loss.
