  • Fondest memory of a Dear loved one. Uncle Betty, only her and Ira would understand the one day I had a froediant slip of the toung and called her Uncle Betty!

    We loved her very much and will always hold her near to our hearts.

    When I had my accident she was there for me and took me to therapy and put up with all my attitude, and then told me things would get better. She was right.

    We always enjoyed having her and Ira to the boys birthdays and taco feeds.

    We will remember her always, and We know she has gone to a far better fishing hole.

  • Dear Ira,Mark,Gail and families…

    Our hearts are broken and the hurt is unbarable, but we all will heal in time and my sisters love will always be with us. She was the “Little/Big Rock” of our family and she taught us all lessons that will live with us in our coming years.

    Let us all stay in touch with each other and keep family as her light.

    Love you all so much…

  • Dear Ira and Family, My sincere sympathies to all of you. I worked with Betty at Lamb-Weston, and she was my favorite co-worker. She was fun, full of humor, and we shared lots of jokes. I hadn’t seen her in recent years, but thought of her very often. I regret that I didn’t call her once in awhile and maybe go for lunch.

  • Gail & Family,

    Unavoidably unable to attend your Mom’s service, I wanted you to hear that I’m truly sorry that we’ve lost such a great lady. As you know, Betty’s outlook & kindness positively influenced my own life as a teenager. I know that you are all hurting terribly & hope that you’ll take comfort in these notes from those who care. I’m thinking of you all fondly today & through these next steps to finding peace in her completed, meaningful life.
