Beautiful Lady. Good church friend. Shared much on visits to her home after the death of dear Bob. She loved our son, Mark. Bob asked him to help Betty by keeping the outside, (lawn,shrubs and etc. looking good) and give advice when needed. We always remembered each others birthdays.
Keeping all the family in our thoughts and prayers.

Betty was a dear friend. She was always smiling and cheerful. I was so sad to hear of her passing. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to spend time with Betty over the Christmas Holiday. She was always a gracious host. I will miss Betty . RIP dear Lady

My heartfelt prayers and sympathy for all of Betty’s family. I felt like I knew her through my sweet friend Bobbie who loved to remember all the family vacations and celebrations. Heaven has a new angel!
