  • Betty was a kind and loving lady. She was my second mom when I was growing up on Ferris Road. I practically lived at the Wenger house. She cooked me fantastic meals and drove me to numerous camp fire girl meetings.
    She will be dearly missed by all but is now in heaven doing wonderful things up there.

    R.I.P. Betty,

  • Judy, Vicky and Doug: My sincere sympathy to you and your families. I enjoyed the friendship of your Mother very much while living on Ferris Road and continued that friendship later in life when getting together with the Ferris Road gang for lunches. I know she will be missed very much. God Bless, Marjie Hunter and family.

  • James, Vicki, and Family,

    Our deepest sympathy. May you cherish the special memories that Betty created with you spanning these many years.
