I was saddened to read this morning of Betty’s passing. I will always remember her as that tiny, friendly lady who worked in Dorina’s store. She was so kind and helpful. A real lady.

Gary, Barry & families: Trying to reflect on the memories of your Mom, Grandma, Aunt, etc. cannot be absorbed in only a few short lines, but all of these good things, you already know. We had the enjoyment of living beside her & your grandparents when we got our first child. Her smile & affection showed her love of children . We have many fond memories of those days and Heaven is a brighter place with her. Keep her memories alive and know you all have our most sincere condolences.

So sorry to hear about Betty's passing. She was quite a pleasant lady who always wore a smile. Whenever I would see her, she would usually say something to me that made me smile too. She made Clarksville a better place to live and hang around.

When we are gone, we only hope to have left behind a positive influence and a good name and reputation . Betty sure did!

Accept our condolences.
