Betty was my sister-in-law and she was a very special lady. Not only was she a good cook, she was a very Godly lady. I remember the good times when we use to get together on Sunday nights and play games. In my younger days when I was single and living in Maryland on Christmas she sent me a box of homemade cookies and candy. Being away from home this was a big surprise to me. We used to get together at the old pack house and make mints. It was a joyful time full of fun and laughter as we stretched the mint. She has now gone to be with her Savior and her body is healed and she can walk again. Know that my prayers are with all of the family and may God Comfort you at this sad time in your lives.

Aunt Betty will be deeply missed by our entire family. We are heart broken for all of us however we know she has her Angel wings. As a child I will never forget the wonderful times at her home. The kitchen always smelled of something delicious. To all my cousins please know how deeply Bill and I feel the loss. We love you all very much. Mary Anne and Bill Ham

We are so saddened with the news of Betty but know she is with the Lord. Betty was a beautiful Christian lady with a heart of gold. She was loved by so many and we thought of her as our second mother. She was sweet and had a great sense of humor and always lit up when my husband walked in a room. They would hug and tease each other. Loved her so much! Love Charles and Mary Haddix

Betty was a wonderful Christian lady. Pam and I loved her and the family. While our hearts are sad, we know Betty is with the Lord. Betty was always smiling, always joking. She was just a joy to be around. We pray for Harold and Children that God will give them His Peace and comfort. We want the family to know if they need anything please call us. Love John and Pam Somers
