Our family was very sorry to hear the news of Betty passing. The family is in our prayers. As a large family it is hard to get together like we used to when we were young children at the family homestead, but I do remember those times fondly - thank you for adding to those great memories Betty!

I remember when we were kids and we would have hog butchering at grandpa Bechtel’s in the family all participated. Sorry I am unable to attend the viewing or the funeral due to health issues but my thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time

When we were younger Betty and her family would come to Uncle Willie's and she was always smiling and working doing something for her mom Aunt Edith. She was just so much fun. My mom enjoyed making clothes for her children also. My prayers to the family.
