Betty was a loving and devoted daughter, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her greatest love was her family whom she loved spending time with. She never met a stranger, and had a heart of pure gold. She was always willing to do anything for anyone and would give her last dime if needed. Betty accepted Jesus Christ many years ago and could often be heard walking through Walmart singing Gospel Hymns. She loved the Lord and was always willing to share His word with others and always ready to pray for those in need.

Betty is at peace in the everlasting arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rest now Betty, we can take it from here . . . .

Dan, Tommy, and Barbara,

I am so sorry about your mother. Your whole family has always meant a lot to me. I was in school with all of you and you are all good memories for me! I just want you to know that I think of you often and hope you are all doing well. Again, I am so sorry about your mom...she was always so nice to me when I was growing up. I just wanted to let you know that I think of you often and love you all.

With my deepest sympathy,
