I want to express my condolences to Ron Emberg and family. Betty was a follower of Jesus, and she lived her calling. She was patient and loving. She was an example to all who knew her. I'll never forget her weekend as Rectora on the Via de Cristo weekend. In spite of her "stage fright," she led the weekend, and gave her talk. She was a true servant.
Romans 6:8-9 "...If we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him. For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him." We hold fast to the promises of God. We will see Betty again.

I have worked with Betty at Ryder for ten years. I enjoyed her friendship and remember how fast she read a book and passed on to me. She knew which books my husband liked and offered suggestions. She always shared memories of St Louis and the traditions she had during her trips with Ron, from getting the gooey butter cake to stopping at her favorite White Castle.
I will miss her very much and I am glad she came into my life.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ron and Family. Betty was a very special, gentle, caring soul. She made her Via de Cristo weekend the same weekend that John and I did -- it was one of the two weekends that had males and females both at the same table -- Coed #5. Very few of those who participated in that weekend continued in the movement. But John and I had the pleasure of working with Betty on many teams through the years since then.
She will be missed greatly.

It was always a pleasure to work with Betty on the Vi de Christo teams. She was always there with a smile, and in her quiet gentle way made sure you knew she was serving her Lord.

Ron, our hearts are broken for you. We have such great memories of our time together back at St Luke’s in St. Louis. Our epic trip to New Orleans in the big, frog green van. The Youth gathering was amazing, and the kids we took had a special time (in spite of the
green pool and no towels in our hotel out in Gretna and when the air conditioning went out in the Super Dome!). I remember how great you and Betty were relating to the kids. It was such a nice surprise to reconnect here in Atlanta. Again, through the church. We pray for God’s peace and comfort in the coming weeks and months.
