We send our heartfelt condolences and wishes for strength to all who loved Betty . The animals certainly did, as she looked out for them, understood what they endure at human hands, and had a great heart. They need all the friends they can get in this world, and Betty's loss will be felt by her animal family here. With hopes for happy memories of this kind woman, from all of us at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Ingrid Newkirk, president.

To John and family, Betty taught dance at the Reynoldsburg Senior Center where I was Director and she brought grace and beauty every time she stepped in. “A pretty girl is like a melody” and that was Betty. I am so sorry for your loss and will hold the memories dear.
