Never saw Betty much during my short life, but when I did she was always full of life and happy to see a relative. A more upbeat person I don't believe you could find anywhere. Wish she and I had spent more time together to enjoy conversations. This is a person that will be missed a great deal by all who knew her.

My condolences to all of you. Granny was such an upbeat positive woman. She would do anything for her grandchildren. I will never forget her huge heart and upbeat soul, I am so grateful I was able to be a part of her life. Heaven has gained such a remarkable angel.

Betty was my maid of honor 72 years ago. We loved to talk about the good times we had together over the years. I will miss her.
