My sincere sympathy to Bill and family, when they built their new home and moved to Nelson Drive we gained a family of giving. Betty and I became acquainted as fellow real estate agents and I learned a lot from her. She, Bill and Mark were always ready to help.

Betty, Grandma, Mom, You loved so deeply! And we were blessed to feel it every day, Thank-you for that. We are also blessed to have had you in our lives and you will live on in our cherished memories forever. You’ve inspired me greatly and I’m a better person for having known you. The kids and I are making a pumpkin pie in your honor today, they both thought about it and agreed it was the best thing to do to say good bye. We love you. Godspeed, Jolyn, Billy and Emily

You were my biggest role model and the most fabulous grandmother in the world. You lived life with so much joy and grace and gave so much love to everyone around you. If I can grow to be half the woman you were, I will be lucky. You will be greatly missed, but your love and memory will live on forever. I love you grandma and I will never forget everything you’ve taught me in life.

“When you go out, all you need is your lipstick and credit card.”
I will be wearing orange lipstick to your funeral even though no one can pull it off quite like you could. I love you to the moon and stars and beyond. Love, Your Kaybird ❤

Betty was a wonderful Christian lady and leader who brought so much joy to Friends who she ministered to at our church. May the Lord’s presence begin the healing in your hearts and may His love surround you with the comfort only He can give.

Betty was a wonderful, Christian, “lady” in the most faithful sense. She was a joy to be around and we were beyond blessed to call her “neighbor” and FRIEND! Our Love to the family. Jim and Sharyn
