I didn’t know Betty very well, but I lived down the street from her when I was growing up. To her family, I’m sorry for your loss.

Betty was a wonderful lady in the short time I got to know her and care for her. She will be dearly missed.

Betty was a special person in the life of our whole family. We were neighbors on Lynne Ln for many years and enjoyed our visits across the street and in our homes. We also attended Immanuel Lutheran Church so that was another connection that we cherished. For many years we got together for our birthday as mine was also in February. We enjoyed seeing our son-in-law, Mark, also to get to know Betty and look forward to seeing her in church when they came home. Our lives were enriched with Betty in them and she will be missed!
