Billie was a great and very caring person. She has been in my family for years. She took good care of my nephew Mike Martenson. He thought of Billie like his grandma. Mikey would spend summers on the farm with Bill and Billiem Mikey cried all the way home. He wanted his Boey!!! You will be sadly missed Boey!!

a few of my favorite memories of my sister Billie are and will forever be her infectious laugh and smile you could not help from smiling yourself when you heard her chuckle. I had a few occasions to help her bake pies and fruit cakes for several volunteer projects she was involved in, people came for of course for her treats (she was an awesome cook and baker) but mainly to see Billie and shoot the breeze with possibly one of the nicest people ever. my children will always remember when aunt Billie lived on the farm and could go out and pick apples off a tree in her backyard (no jewel is not the only place to pick apples) and they got to sit on a farm tractor and run thru a corn fields, they also got to hunt and bring home live salamanders that aunt Billie gave them (yuck) that was one of the coolest thing for them. I will miss you my sister and I will cherish your memory always. Until we meet again. love pj

I know that Cousin Billie's family will have so many great memories to talk about and so she will always be around of them. My heart goes out to my cousins. So sorry I couldn't be there.
