Condolences for Betty Jean Roberts
God speed Aunt Betty, I already miss you. I have such fond memories of the times we had together when I was a kid growing up and later as an adult. I didn’t see you often but you have always been in my heart and on my mind.
Love, Mary E.
I am so sorry to hear about Betty. She was a wonderful woman. I had the pleasure of working with her at super Saver and she was such a delight! I remember her smile and her love of all of her customers from Super Saver and Klein’s. I know she will be missed.
Lloyd and family, my deepest condolences to you for your loss. I enjoyed every minute I had with her. She laughed at me so much!! Thank you for letting me help her through her journey. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Jenny RN
To the family of Betty Roberts:
I was saddened to see the notice of Betty’s death. Just thinking of her brings back such happy and fun moments. I worked with Betty at Klein’s IGA in 1984-1986. Betty is the one who taught me in college how to “trick-or-drink” on your friends! She was a fun person, and a great worker. I always looked forward to working shifts with her. I also enjoyed seeing her at Super Saver in the years following. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. May God’s grace and fond memories bring you peace.
Betty was a true gem. She was our boss at Bonanza on 84th & O’ street. My husband and I actuallly met at Bonanza, when Betty & Doneta were the managers. We married a few years later in 1984.
Rest well Betty, you arevery deserving.
