    Betty did not die, she was born into eternal life and sooner not later it will be our turn in the box so NOW is the time to make peace with anyone you have hard feelings for and NOW is the time to seek God. Betty was unassuming and a people person she didn’t care about the credit helping others was what mattered most. She loved all animals and they loved her back, yet Betty was the toughest person I ever met, her first husband died of cancer, she fought cancer, and she led me through mine. She lost a husband and a son but never her heart. she saved my life twice. If you knew her as a teacher’s aid or the bag plant or even just because we ate out a lot-feel welcome to come and share a Miss Betty story. Like her we have never met a stranger…and you are welcome

    Betty you would be amazed at the number of people you touched while on this earth. Your gracious greeting and inviting personality were main stays. I always enjoyed our chats in the middle of a stressful day. You brought a change-of-pace that I looked forward to.
    Thanks for being a meaningful part of my life.

    Miss Betty was always very uplifting. She always had something good to say about everyone. She was never too busy to help anyone. She always looked at the bright side of all situations. She will truly be missed as the good and faithful servant.

    Sorry that we will be able to attend due to health reasons. Betty always kept us entertained at the family reunions we used to have. She left us with many wonderful memories and was always fun to be around. She was a special person!
