  • Birthdays are filled with surprises, and today Betty surprised our family when we learned of her passing on the day of her birthday and our Mother’s ……cousins born the same day less than a few miles apart, but a special day they shared many times together and so many others shared that will
    always be remembered because she was such a warm, caring person. A day to remember always, but
    a day to celebrate life , confident that someday we will be together again.

  • Aunt Betty was the best! She could sing, stand on her head, clog, many fond memories of her & Uncle Art. I never saw her grouchy or in a bad mood. I never heard Aunt Betty talk about people or be critical of them. She had a heart of gold! She called my dad Jake & he called her Liz. I will miss her! Our condolences to Randy & Connie, Muriel, Heather, Trent & Neil. Love, Marsha, Kelly & Kennedy

  • Just several weeks ago I talked with you, seemed strange when I got a call that you changed addresses. You surely will be missed by all who known you over the years. You always asked ” was Don still dancing” Will miss you at – Music in the Park where at times I would get a glimpse of you enjoying dancing and enjoying the music, you loved life and could bring laughter into the lives of others. I’ll miss you Betty.
