While Betty didn’t like mayo, and was a very particular eater, she sure loved desserts and chocolates, and she could bake up a storm. Always dressed to the nines, she was beautiful inside and out. A devoted Christian, dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and the kindest and most loving friend imaginable. She’s forever in my heart. My husband, Terry loved her too!
Our thoughts and prayers of comfort are with you all.
