    • We appreciate all your thoughts and prayers and thank you for being a positive part of Mom’s life.

  • Betty, the most lovable person. When visiting her, sometimes I would “feel down” but she was always in such a good mood no matter how bad she felt! Her not knowing how I felt, she would always ask, but I would say, “OK”. After leaving her room I would always feel better. She would always ask how other people were doing! She would always talk about her family, how much she cared for them. Talk about the great times she had with friends in the car groups.
    We will miss her. Our feelings of sorrow and loss are nothing compared to what her family is feeling, but our love goes out to them. Rev. 21:4,5

    • We appreciate all your thoughts and prayers and thank you for being a positive part of Mom’s life.

  • Family of Betty,

    She was such a nice lady. My son, Barry Snyder, a patient at Galion Pointe thought the
    world of her.

    She always had a smile on her face. I will miss seeing her when I visit my son.

    My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
