Betty and I go back to grade school. We were always fond of one another. We remained friends through the years. I was grateful when she came to visit me here in Spring, TX. My condolences to her daughter Sheryl and her husband Tommy. God bless 🙏 🙌 ❤

I worked with Ms. Betty for years @ Weight Watchers. She was a hoot. I loved her spunk and zest for life. We had many good conversations about kids, husbands, and life. She was a lovely lady and always in fashion. I am so sorry to see her passing. My condolences to her family. May God give you encouragement and comfort during the times ahead. I know she will be greatly missed.
