You guys are in my thoughts and prayers.
Betty was an amazing woman. I have enjoyed to gotten to know her and spend time with her listing to her stories for 14 yrs. She taught me how make grape jelly, grape wine and how to garden. I have learned a lot and I'm gracious for the quality time I got to spend with Betty. She'll be deeply missed!!!

Betty was just an awesome lady. She drove bus when I went to school and also for my kids. She delivered an organ, bought by my parents at an auction, to our house when I was a kid. Just helping out. Great lady! I remember Betty fondly. Rest in peace Betty. You and you kindness will be missed. ☝️
