My condolences to the family. Betty was quite a lady. I'm gonna miss her quick wit. I wrote to her quite regularly and the words always came to easily. I will definitely miss writing to her. Loved going with the TCC Youth Group to sing her Christmas songs. She always had a request, but never the same song. Enjoyed her company when we popped in to sing. Love and prayers to you all. God Bless.

Though her smile is gone forever and her hand I cannot touch -- I still have memories, of the one I was around so much. Her memory is my keepsake, with which I will never part. God has her in his keeping and I have her in my heart. Sadly missed but not forgotten.
Betty was one of my volunteers at the meal site at the senior citizen center, when I was Meal site Supervisor. I enjoyed my times with her so much, and her wealth of information, her volunteer efforts were endless and her friendship will be with me forever.
