  • I am sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. My thoughts and prayers to the entire family. I just had surgery and if I feel I can I will pay my respects at the graveside service. If not I will be there in prayer with our Father. Jesus said In my Fathers House there are many Mansions; if it were not so I would not have told you; I go to prepare a place for you. I wasn’t blood but one of your kids. Betty we will visit one day.

  • I am a stylist at Neon Salon. We loved Betty! She had a great sense of humor and a very loving heart. We will miss her very much. Love and prayers to all of her family! 🙏❤️

  • Betty taught me so much, when I was at Ohio Bell. She made a huge difference in my life, and I think of her often. I always will, and thank you, Betty, for all you taught us youngsters in the world of business. You helped me grow, and I hold you in my heart.
