  • Carol and family, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. She was always so joyful person. Prayers being said for you and your family. -Deanna

  • Carol, so sorry for your loss. I am so glad to have seen you and Mom at the Eye Doctor’s Office the other day. God Bless you at this time and many Prayers for you all and God’s Peace with you all. Sherrie Weiser.

  • Carol and family
    I met your mom when we were just teenagers.What a life we both had, we both married the love of our lives and raised our family. She was a very loving friend that wiil be missed.

  • I met Betty in 1997, and over the years got to know her and Carl fairly well. Both of them would give you the clothes on their back, and help anyone who sincerely needed it. If I was having a rough day I would stop by from time to time and Betty could always bring light to a down day, and wore her emotions on her cuff.
    She could be very ornery and loved to laugh. (She could tell the saltiest of jokes, and get everyone belly laughing.) I will never forget her hearty laugh. Sometimes my son would be with me and she could always make Kyle blush, and crack a smile telling him how handsome he was.
    She will be missed, but never forgotten.
    Rest in eternal peace My friend❤️

  • Carol I am so sorry for your loss I worked with Betty at Seattle Labs (the best job ever) and then when I started at Grady, there Betty was again. She was so funny and ornery. We had many laughs together. May you be at peace knowing your mom was loved by so many people. The memories you have will be cherished forever. Heart Hugs.

  • Oh, Betty, you will be so missed! You are now able to be with your Savior & reunited with Carl. Your sweet & gentle spirit always showed forth our loving Savior,Jesus Christ. You graciously welcomed all to your home & loved cooking for everyone! You taught me how to crochet & I will always remember you with each crocheted dishcloth, towels (especially towels) & blankets that I make! Look forward to seeing you again, lovingly, Debbie Dickson…Psalm 116:15

    It was an absolute pleasure being Carl and Betty’s pastor for the short time we were at Scioto Valley Church. We forged an eternal friendship that will be enhanced so dearly in our Savior’s Kingdom. Until then, enjoy your fellowship with the Saints in Glory. You will be greatly missed here. God bless your family and friends left behind. Your brother in Christ, Pastor Denny Dickson. Phillipians 1:6
