I had the pleasure of knowing Betty Jean when she lived at CVTC. She was so lively and sweet and so helpful with the other individuals there. She was a favorite among the staff and we loved her.
RIP Betty Jean

Betty was a beautiful Lady! She loved Jesus so much. She was always so happy to receive Jesus in The Eucharist whenever I or anyone else brought it to her. She is home now with Jesus and I thank Him for the gift of her life!
