She was an accomplished pianist, liked to travel/vacation and spend time with her precious family and friends. If you ever had one of her home cooked meals, it was something that you would never


Betty was a beloved mother and me-maw to her children and

grandchildren. To all that called her a friend, she so dearly loved that life long relationship. She will always be remembered, as a special lady that always gave a tremendous amount of herself and did so without ever expecting anything in return.

She was a trusting child of God and her faith never wavered during life's afflictions and tribulations. She has touched and influenced so many people's lives during her life and done so in a profound everlasting manner.

Our Heavenly savior has called his cherished servant home. No words can express how greatly missed she will be by those who knew and loved her. By her faith and the grace of God, she is now completely restored, smiling and walking beside her Lord Almighty.
