I was Ben and Betty's mailman for years. They were two of the nicest people I've met in my 30 years. I always enjoyed talking to Betty whenever she had a package or her medication. She was such a sweet lady. My Condolences to your family. Tom Hougan

Betty is not just a neighbor but she has been like a second mother to me. My mom passed in 1990 from cancer at the age of 70. Other than my mom, I've never met a kinder lady than Betty. I will miss her terribly but I'm glad the good Lord has called her Home. We used to enjoy many desserts together and she especially loved when I made Ambrosia salad. I will cherish my memories. ❤🙏
