Remembering Betty and Bud when Frank and I served on the 1980 Homecoming Committee with them. We had such fun brainstorming the event at frequent meetings. If you gave Betty a task you were sure it got done! May your happy family memories give you peace at this difficult time.

To the Grant family,
I was fortunate to have Betty come into my life many years ago,1953. I though of her often over the years and was able to pay her a visit during the summer of 2020.
It is with great sadness to know that Betty has passed. You have my deepest sympathy and I grieve with you. May she be at peace.
Jackie Thomas.
