Betty Jean Sanderfield was not just my sister but my closest friend and confidant. She has been my joy... and favorite sparing partner. So much endured together and so many awesome milestones shared. Salute!

Betty was my cousin but also a friend. Over the years we have lost touch and that is a large regret for me. We shared laughs and great times when she would come to visit in the summers. Love you, Bet

Yes, I also agree with my sister Beth!! We had so much fun playing and visiting with Betty, Joe, June and April when we use to go to Uncle Franks and Aunt Pats. I am sad that Betty didn’t get to experience many later years of her life with her family, but know that she gave them many happy memories with the time she had. Love you cousin Betty!! Always in our hearts! Chauncey ❤️❤️

So many memories of our younger years of family visits with Uncle Frank & Aunt Pat’s to visit with Betty, Joe, June & April. Betty was a terrific person, giving her all to her family. Love you Betty.

Goodness, we have so many memories of Betty it is hard to pick just one. She was a mentor, friend, and basically another mom. We shared so many trips to six flags, summer cookouts, early work mornings, afternoon coffees, weddings, hospital visits, good times and bad. We had cries, but the laughter sure outweighed that. I will never forget our casino visits and her trying to drag me and Jen away from the slots. She was one of the best souls out there. Always willing to do anything for anyone and she will be so sorely missed. Betty, you've left us far to young, but I think its because Heaven was just getting impatient. We will love you forever!!
