It is a very sad time for me to accept losing my dear sister in law Betty.. I remember our friendship began at Belleville High School when she was this very popular cheer leader loved by all. Little did I know at the time, I would marry her brother Daniel and become a part of the beautiful Serpentelli family. Many happy events we shared as our families grew. These are blessings I will never forget. In the past years Betty and I spoke by telephone every Sat. morning promptly at 11am when we would exchange family news. I will continue to hold that time special with a prayer for her. ❤️😘❤️

I have many great memories of my aunt Betty growing up. All the great holidays and other special times our family spent together were truly wonderful times that I will cherish forever. She was a wonderful person, kind, considerate and loved by all that were fortunate enough to know her. While we all grieve her loss in our own way, as a child of God, we are all comforted by the fact that our loss is heavens gain. I am sure all of our family in heaven will welcome her in to Gods arms.
