I will always remember Betty's smile. I remember the family reunions, Betty was the quiet one but loved to hear her laugh. So very sorry for your loss. So happy to have seen her on my last trip to Ohio. Love you girls. Hugs

It's sad to think we will never hear the words "oh, my golly" from her ever again. She was always such a joy to be around. She did get a little upset over spills. I remember in your new home that she flipped when one of the kids knocked over a drink a Christmas time. It went on her new carpet. But honestly, in 63 years that is the only time I remember her getting upset She was such a joy to be around. Will miss her but glad she is reunited with her husband, parents, son, grandson, brother and sister. Hopefully they have square dancing in heaven!

Betty you will be missed. So many pleasant thoughts of those early years growing up with your kids on Poplar street.
We were quite a bunch. Maybe even a handful. It never fazed you..
Thanks for being part of our lives.
