So sorry for your loss. Thinking of you during this time. You are such a joy to have in the office and to work with.

We are so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. So grateful to know that see will see her again.
It’s confusing and heartbreaking. Our family will not be the same without her, but it seems to have brought us all together on a different level. I will remember Betty’s kindness, creativity, and nurturing spirit. I will also fondly remember her tiny feets in slipper socks when busy in her home ❤
She has been family my entire life and I will miss her greatly 😔😪🙏🙏🙏
Bud worked with Betty for many years as one of the first volunteers to work with The Road to Recovery. Marjorie worked with Betty in the Bethany Womens organization. Betty was so devoted to the Road to Recovery and the Cancer Society. She will be greatly missed by all the activities she was involved in.
Our deepest sympathy to her family.
We are so sorry and shocked by the sudden loss of Betty ! Prayers for Jack and the family !!
Jack, we were so sorry to hear about Betty’s sudden passing while we were out of town. She was a real gem and was so passionate about supporting cancer survivors. You both have been an asset to our neighborhood. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, and we are so sorry you are going through this sad and challenging time.
