Betty and I worked together at Paccar 40+ years ago before my husband and I were married, In fact, Betty knew before I did that we would be married!! When our husbands met is when our friendship jelled. Those two guys were two peas in a pod, so much alike. We enjoyed John and Betty so much. They both brought so much joy to us. It was a rare friendship that doesn't come along often. John and Phil both enjoyed woodworking and shared several projects with each other. Betty and I were close like a mother and daughter and I adored her quirky ways. When she moved to Marysville for a short time I would drive 'Miss Daisy' wherever she wanted to go, we would go shopping, have lunch, do our nails and sometimes do doctor appts. She kept me running all the time and then would ask if I had found a job yet? I told her she was my job, she kept me so busy I didn't have time to look for a job!!

Betty loved the Lord and her beloved John, it was hard for her to live without him. They are together again and she is finally at peace. I am actually happy for her.

Aunt Betty stayed with us on our farm in eastern Washington a number of times.We had fun teasing her about getting the right sized gloves so she could help us pick rocks or chop firewood.She had equal fun dishing out whatever we could give her.She always laughed her way through things.

Betty was one of my dearest friends, We shared our love in Christ and many trips and adventures together, before and after her dearly beloved John passed away. I had a GPS in my car and we nicknamed him George and had so much fun telling him off and going a different way and his English voice saying, “recalculating, turn around and etc, We laughed so much together over the last 35+ years and shared many tears together. I will miss her so very very much, but now I feel her presence with me. We agreed whoever went first would be the other’s guardian angel and she is my angel. I know her and John are with Jesus and are waiting for me to join them, for that I am rejoicing in Christ, who is my hope and trust. I will see you soon my beloved Betty. From Carolee poo, John and her’s nickname for me. I love you and your beautiful family very much. Carol Stewart.
