Betty was a wonderful listener. I would always find myself sharing my burdens with her & not know how she got me there. Betty would help at the church rummage sale. She would have me pick her up, fold baby clothes for hours, then we would head home. I could always count on her!
I could always count on her for a listening ear, for help, to make me laugh. I'll miss you but celebrate your victory in heaven. Love you Pam

Nana was the most amazing woman I’ve ever met. I’ll never forget her and everything she’s taught me.
