Im so sorry to hear about this sweet lady passing. Used to love to see her kind smiling face every day in the lunch line at Redding. She gave the best hugs to all of us. Hope she is resting comfortably in the arms of Jesus. We will miss you Miss Betty 😢🙏

I grew up across the street from Ms. Betty and Mr M.C. Ms Betty came to our house and invited me to go to church with her.....46 years ago. She was well loved and will be truly missed. My prayers are with the family, this angel has gotten her wings.

Miss Betty was a true Christian and a Godly woman. To have known her was to love her. Have many wonderful memories of Miss Betty when we volunteered at Cherry Blossom Rehabilitation and Nursing Home. She had a beautiful soul and know Jesus has a new angel in Heaven.

What a sweet smile & kind words we always had waiting on us as we went through the lunchroom line at Redding. I remember going to her house as a child; my Mother was her friend. Prayers for the Newberry family!
