  • As Activities Coordinator at The Station Break, Betty was a special friend! She gave me so many wonderful things to add to our craft supplies, as well as great ideas for crafts and decorations. She was instrumental is gathering many Ohio-themed gifts to give to veterans from all over the US who attended a special camp outing in our area last fall. I will miss her presence at the Station Break, her creativity, and our many conversations. Fly to Jesus, Betty.

  • Rich and Cindy, Your Mom will be missed by this part of the family. She was my other mother. When I say that she would laugh. But said she liked it. My thoughts prayers and love are with you.

  • Cindy,

  • Dear Cindy and Richie we are so sorry about the loss of your mother. She was a special person to me as well as your dad (DBNBB/G 🙂 ). When I think of all the good times we had at your home with all of you and the fun hunting & frog gigging times dad and I had with your dad it puts a smile on my face and joy in my heart. The loss of a loved one is never easy but thinking of the good memories, which are many, helps to ease the pain of the loss.
    Never over look the Lord God Almighty the most valuable source of strength. “Casting all your care upon him for He careth for you.” 1st Peter 5:7.
    We love you and are praying for you.
    Steve & Ruthann
