Betty was a friend to all, her smile and willingness to help others were her trademarks. She has left a legacy we should all strive to emulate: in her relationships, her home, her family, her church, and her community. An angel here on earth, Betty has now gained her heavenly wings.

Prayers for peace and understanding for her family and friends as they move through these days and weeks of change and grief and loss.
