I am so sorry for the loss of Betty, what a kind and sweet person. Fond memories of visiting Glenn and Betty when I lived in Greenville and Roger was still alive. Roger and Glenn worked together for years and we're good friends. Prayers to the family for strength during this time and I pray that God will be with you. I know Betty loved the Lord, and I know she is with him now.

Glenn, Lindsay, Lauren, Aunt Sandy and all loved ones,
I share so many loving memories to carry in my heart--I think one of Betty's gifts was making those around her feel loved--she knew how to rejoice with those who rejoiced and hurt with those who hurt---though she had many of her own personal cares, that did not stop her from sharing the "Greatest Gift" of Love--My heart is richer for having been a part of her life-
Connected in heart to each of you,
Ellen and Kevin

Betty will be forever remembered for her caring nature and all she has done for this family. With everything she has been dealt she has always come forward and loved all! I believe her wish would be for everyone to be safe and take care of those dear to you and I know she is not far from us looking over. God be with the family left behind may they find comfort knowing she is at peace. God Bless ❤️

Glenn, Lauren, Lindsay and Family...there are no words to express my sadness to you. I learned of Betty's passing when I opened the newspaper moments ago. Betty and I were best friends for years, as you know, when we worked at GE together. What a kind, loving, gentle, dedicated and true friend she was. I'll remember, always, all the laughs and good times we shared but there will also be a piece of my heart missing now, which Betty filled. I'm so thankful, knowing God owns the land on both sides of The River of Life .God bless you , Glenn. Lauren and Lindsay and the family. Rest In Peace , Betty, my beloved Friend.
