My former church acquired some more members when Betty's church merged into ours. This was a blessing to our church as she was faithful in worshiping and service to the church. She once served as a church secretary , delivered meals in our Meals on Wheels ministry, knitted prayer shawls, was helper in church administration and finances. She served as Sunday School class treasurer and a beloved member. She often shared her faith and her experiences as a military wife. My deepest sympathies to her sister, Eugenia, and all her family. She will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
