Betty was such a sweet woman. My mom thought the world of her and loved working with her at Lena’s. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time, especially Bill and Linda.

Got to know Betty while employed at Hickory Funeral Home. She was always so pleasant and cheerful and a darn good hairdresser. Sure hate to read of her passing.
