I am so sorry to hear of Betty's death! In the short time we new her she always talked about the love of her children and grandchildren! She was recently buying baby dolls for them to play with at our garage sale! And whenever she spoke of her children and beloved Sam she smiled from ear to ear! Rest in peace sweet lady!

I’ll never understand what I did in my lifetime to deserve such an incredible woman to call my grandma. Someone so selfless, kind, vibrant and loving. Everytime we were together, you never ceased to make me laugh. My most fond memory, however, is when you let me cut your hair when I was only 14! That alone earned you the title of “Bravest. Woman. Ever. “! You were one of dopest souls to be reckon with and your love will forever live on through me. Rest Easy, beautiful.

Grandma Betty was an amazing woman who was so non-judgmental and accepting of everyone. We will always remember Kool-Aid and gardening times together. Whether watching a movie together or riding around on the tractors, she always made our time together memorable. Always in our heart -
