Our deepest sympathy at your loss of dearest Betty. We got to know Betty at the pinochle group on Monday evenings at the Senior Center in Miamisburg. Betty was a sharp player and enjoyed the game very much. All of us will certainly miss her every Monday night.
Our prayers and love,
Pauline and Roger Everman

Dear Sandy, Connie and Nancy, it was always a pleasure to be of assistance as a Caregiver to your Mother. She always treated me with respect and appreciation. I enjoyed her sense of humor and admired her for the liveliness she exhibited in her daily activities. She seemed to never waste a minute and enjoyed a long, full life. You were the best daughters a Mother could want. Linda Call (Centerville, OH)

The few times I had the pleasure of experiencing Betty Ball in person, I found her spunk, enthusiasm, and determination truly inspiring...in her 90's and still out there working on those flower beds!! Thank you, Missy, for sharing your grandma with me! My thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time of letting go. Much love...

She was a wonderful seamstress. I am still using pillow shams she made for me to match a dust ruffle.
