  • I was so sad to receive the news of Betty’s passing. Seemed more than I could accept that such a wonderful wife, mother, and friend is gone. Know I am here for you if there is anything I can do. Please feel free to call, anytime.

  • Uncle Paul, Debbie, and Chris-

    So sorry about the loss of Aunt Betty. She was a very special person to all of us, and especially Mandy and Emmy, as they stepped in as the grandparents for the girls, when mom went through her ‘phase’ of no involvement. I called Steven, and him and Lynn feel as bad for the loss, as we do. If at all possible, I would very much like to be there for her memorial. She was, and always will be, very loved.

    Please get ahold of me regardless. My number is 419-563-4541. My email is

    Much love,

    Kathy (Sherman) and Larry Stoney and the girls Mandy and Emmy
