Betty was a wonderful person. I worked with both she and Gary for many years until they retired. Gary was my very first boss at Whirlpool and from him I learned so much. Betty was helpful and cheerful and always a pleasure to work with. She was one of the female managers that I looked to as a role model because she could be results driven and still have fun.

I worked with Betty for many years. She was a very competent professional, had a strong work ethic and got along with everyone. She was very personable away from work. My condolences go out to her family and friends.

I remember so well the first day I met Betty at Whirlpool. She was offered a job with R&E but they had a cutback and she was in limbo. Chuck Rollinger called and asked if we could use her and the answer was a resounding "YES." We were blessed to have her in our area of IT. Of course I will never know if it was because she was from Patoka and I was born in Kinmundy that influenced my thinking, but it doesn't matter because she was so very good for our department and everyone that met her. Mary Ann and I had an opportunity to visit with her and Gary in Brown County a couple of times, and just Betty after Gary passed away. They have left us with many fond memories of two beautiful people. Jerry Curry
