  • Del, it is with the upmost respect that I have for you and Betty that I send to you my heart felt condolences. I have truly been blessed to have known Betty and worked with her the last several years at the Historical Society. The one thing that stood out to me the most, about this wonderful woman was the way in which she would light up the room with her smile. I am so glad I had the opportunity to say a prayer with her at home, and thank her for her dedication and selfless work at not only the Butler Museum, but within the community as a whole.
