Betty was not only a great person but a wonderful friend. Through scouting and life she exemplified what a true valued person she was. It was my pleasure to know her and her family. I will miss her, but can't help to think she and my wonderful wife Sue along with Jack are together talking over old times.

Betty and Jack had such a profound impact on my life and on my family’s lives, that it is hard to find the words. The Kincaids proved to me that The Christian Faith isn't merely a set of ideas, but a lifestyle dedicated to serving others. I am but one of a multitude Betty touched in her life. May she delight in her reunion with Jack, and may Our Lord Jesus Christ grant His greatest consolation as you mourn, finding comfort in the knowledge that those who fall asleep in Christ suffer pain no more, and have taken their place amongst the Heavenly Host, singing "Holy, Holy, Holy"; and that those who diligently serve The Lord will one day see her again, as we, too, join the rejoicing throng.

My cherrished childhood memories of Betty and her family are an important part of my life. Betty and Jack were dear church friends of my mother and father, Harold / Mary Thompson. There were many gatherings in their home and the sugar Christmas cookies were a treat we always looked forward during the holidays. There would be a huge table in the basement full of iced sugar cookies.
Betty RIP🙏
