Aunt Betty's spirit was always so bright and cheerful. We had many laughs as she was always up for an adventure. She and mom (Sue) were always getting into something - especially Bingo or the Casino! The memories will forever be in our hearts. (the picture is of her at my wedding with some of the kids-she even enjoyed a spin on the dance floor that night).
