I had the PRIVILEGE of working with Betty the last 5.5yrs that Dr. Ratzan was in practice. Betty and I got along from the start so we had a lot to talk and laugh about, including kid stories, Aaron her grandson was the same age as my son.
Betty loved her husband Frank, her kids and grandchildren, tennis, line dancing, and traveling. Heaven has a wonderful Angel looking out for all of those she loved.

Betty was an avid tennis player. I met her at TORC in Thousand Oaks in the early 1980s.

My fondest memories were our little weekly group of TORC members going country-western line dancing in Camarillo. Betty never missed a chance to don her cowgirl boots and boogie......She loved our all girl outings.

I am sad to hear of her passing but know she lived a full rich life and will join her beloved husband Frank once again.

My deeest condolences to her family.

I did not know Betty Ann but am friends with Tom and Terry. I am sure Betty was a kind and giving woman and as a tennis player, must have had a strong, competitive nature, much like Tom. All the best to friends and family as you celebrate Betty Ann's life. May the Lord give you peace and thanksgiving.
