  • Betty was quick witted, silly, and funny, and the world is a better place for having had her pass through it. I feel fortunate to have met her, and to have been lucky enough to have married her daughter.

  • Dear Stacie: So sorry for your loss. I was wondering if your mother was the Betty Clevinger that used to belong to the Eastern Stars of Crestline, and if your father Edgar, worked for Pennsylvania Railroad, and also built homes? If so, they were dear friends of my parents.
