Dearest Dana, Randy, Robbie, Tori & family,
I worked with Betty at WMHS for years and we had the opportunity to chaperone proms and we would dress up and go out to eat before the prom and had so much fun but of course we always did. She always brought a smile to my face & put laughter in my heart. I love her dearly.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky & land more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts
And we are never, ever the same. (Flavia Weedn)
Betty was very sweet, kind-hearted, loving, caring, giving, and such a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, and friend to many. Her footprints will be left on many a heart and hopefully her wisdom will continue to stay with you and you will continue to dance and look to the sky and smile knowing she is waiting for each and everyone of you to join her with the rest of her heavenly family. May God give you peace, comfort, strength and all His love during these difficult days. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
We know that there are NO words that can help the heartache to heal... But just remember ALL the love that she had for each and everyone of you and ALL the memories that you all have shared with each other is something that NO one can ever steal!
Love Always,
Diane, Doug, Amy, Matt, Elijah, Danielle and Derick
