  • Sorry to see that Betty will no longer live at Lex Court. I visited with her almost weekly and we had some fun conversations about her kids, grandchildren and mutual friends at the resthome. She was always good for a laugh and long talks almost up to the end. She will be greatly missed since I have visited with her quite a few years. May she now Rest In Peace and enjoy being with her beloved husband again.

  • Maggie & Miranda,
    So sorry the hear that your Grandma passed.
    May she Rest In Peace. She’ll be glad to be with her husband & your Dad & Mom.
    Our prayers are with you.

  • TO Emily, Lowell & Families,

    I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I have some fond memories
    of her when I was growing up, and also of visits she and your Dad made to Florida
    at which time they came to Winter Park and spent some time at my house. They
    were always such a special couple and always smiling. Betty was a wonderful
    cousin to me and I will always remember the special times we spent together.
    My heartfelt sympathy to all of you.

    Much love and prayers at this difficult time,

    Laura Guth
