I will never forget all the wonderful years working with Betty at Bauder Elementary School. She was adored by her students and loved by the entire staff! She could pull a happy hour together faster than anybody I ever knew! Her life was never easy, but she always, always wore a smile! We will miss you, but I know you will find eternal peace in heaven. God Bless!
