My deepest sympathy to all of Betty’s family.
Betty was my neighbor , but she felt more like family. Some of my best childhood memories were made in her home. Oh how I loved playing barbies w/ Connie & Cindy. They had everything Barbie , you could ever imagine. It was like walking into a toy store , for just Barbies. I remember Betty going through the newspaper adds, informing us of the newest Barbie furniture, dolls, & clothing , and much more, that would be coming out. She always cut out coupons, which was one of my 1st learning experiences, how to save money. Betty & Dick would let us play in their camper. Cindy , Susie, Connie & myself would travel the world. If we weren’t playing w/ barbies, paper dolls, or in the camper, We were on the front porch swinging, while Betty shared stories of her childhood. I will never forgot when she found out she was pregnant w/ Mickey . It truly was one of the happiest times of their life. I can’t forgot her famous chicken !! I can’t tell you the countless times, I tried to make chicken , that would taste just like hers. I saw Betty last at her 50 th wedding anniversary. I am so thankful, that Ivwas able to attend. It was wonderful taking a walk down memory lane. Mrs . Betty you will forever hold a special place in my heart. Those memories I have cherished all my life. All my love to you , and your entire family. Vickie

I am so sorry for your loss and that I won't be able to come to the visitation or service-my daughter and husband are both having surgery next week. I remember your mom being at my house, maybe babysitting me? I just remember being in awe of her beautiful long blond hair.

Betty was such a sweet, loving and big hearted person. I would go to her house with her daughter, Connie when we were growing up and she treated me like her own. She would always greet me with a huge smile and she would want to feed me. She always made me feel so loved and welcome. When I would go to leave she would always invite me to come back. She loved her family & friends , she was a special lady. Prayers, love, comfort and peace to her family.
