I worked with Betsy at Food Lion. When I started working in the office with Her not only did I learn from Her, I got to hear about Her nephews and nieces, when She spoke about them or showed me photos you could tell they were Her pride and joy. Betsy was also good to employee’s young family members. My great nephew loved to visit Betsy when He came to Food Lion.

Not only was She a great mentor, She was also a great friend, who would listen without judging and give you Her honest opinion. There was a few rough patches in my life that She helped me through just by being there listening, and giving advice.

Betsy was a strong woman who fought a brave battle. She was also very loved by many.

My prayers and love are with Her family. May God comfort you, in the days ahead. ❤️
