Betty was a very special person. She always made special treats for Church potlucks. She was extremely generous. For several years, she assisted a homeless lady. She was there for someone everyone else overlooked.

My grandma loved her shenanigans. She was a fun loving grandma who’s memories I will carry with me forever . From kick ball in the back yard, to playing tricks on my uncle Mike at firehouse to late dinners and lottery tickets , we had a blast. As an adult our bond and love was strong , she even got to know my 2 boys whom they loved to to pieces . I love you grandma. Have a blast above , I know your making everyone laugh - see you in heaven - Mary Beth
