I had the pleasure and privilege of knowing and working with Bettye at the DOI for nearly 14 years. What a wonderful, warm, humorous, kind, and thoughtful person she was! We had so many funny conversations and she never failed to make me laugh and lift my spirits. We continued our conversations after we both retired and I feel so lucky that we kept in touch. The last time we talked was the Thursday before she passed. She was in the hospital and not feeling very well. I am glad I told her I loved her before we hung up for the last time. Bettye was an inspiration to all who knew her and a shining star for those of us fortunate enough to call her a friend. I miss her so much!

I have lost a great friend. Bettye was one of a kind. I worked with her for over 10 years and she was without a doubt the best boss I ever had. She made the work day fun. As long as you did your work, she had no problem with you. She threatened me so many times and said she was going to put me in a 'home' where someone could look after me. We both cried the day I retired. I will always remember her fondly. I love you Bettye and I will miss you so much!!!

What can I say, what word(s) from the English language, any language could even remotely come close to describing this woman I call mom!!! Growing up, kids just assume mommy loves them, it's just a given.
Well not for me and my sissy.!!!!....we KNEW, we were wanted, cared for, worried about, protected, deeply, fiercely LOVED!!!! My little girl eyes always seeing you as larger than life.....a force all your own, installed by a gifted teacher, your very own mother, and the legacy is born.
Cathy and I, never knew your scarfices, our little girl lives never to feel that little ripple of a mother's wistful sigh, for things she couldnt have, the countless times you went without, and you did...for us, willingly, cause you were mom, above all you were mom!!!
Those are the memories, the feelings I will draw upon when I need my mother's love!!! This is who our mother was, we are her legacy, her most important job, we were what she loved unconditionally!!!!
I thank you for that mommy, and for every single day forward. Thank you for my "big girl" memories when I came to stay a few years, when I felt so totally ok, felt safe again, my mom right beside me, and my sissy right downstairs, I hear her voice, heart beating normal, breathing in and out, no fear is felt, safe, loved....... I AM HOME.

Go rest easy mom, beside your......and just hold my daughter for me mommy til I get there.....Love, Cindy
