  • I will miss Grandma Betty very much. I loved her sense of humor and that she lived with us. She liked when we watched movies with her and eating chocolates together! I’m so glad I will see her in heaven someday!

  • Dear Betty,

    Thank you for welcoming me into your family. The teasing, fun, and your sense of humour always kept me laughing. Feeding me during college must have been tough but you did it with a smile. Thank you for the gift of loving my family and most importantly thank you for the Blessing of your daughter, my beautiful and wonderful wife, Nancy. I know that you, Lou, and Cheryl are with our awesome Father in heaven for eternity.

    God Bless you Betty you will always have special place in my heart.

    Love,

    Mark

  • Mom was the best super mom for us. She rode that Hanford bus to the 200 east area for many years…all the while raising us four kids “up on the hill”. She was the kind of mom I sent flowers to, on my birthday.

  • I am so glad that I had the honor and privilege to know Betty. It was a blessing to me that I was able to have such a nice conversation with her a few weeks before she passed. I still have a little book that she had given me so many years ago. I will continue to cherish it. So comforting to know she is in Jesus’ hands and loving the beauty of heaven. My love goes to the family that I love so much, pamela

  • My mom will be greatly missed. One of my favorite things about Mom was her smile. She loved babies and that smile filled her whole being when she held one of her grandbabies or great grandbabies. Over the last serveral months, our family had the priveledge of caring for her as her health declined. She still had her dry sense of humor and teased my husband constantly and he teased her right back. She was very quick witted! I will miss chatting with her about the kids and about what dessert she wanted she had a real sweet tooth the last few years! usually nothing in particular but I will miss hearing her voice. She passed away on one of the most beautiful, sunny, peaceful days with the birds singing more sweetly than I’ve ever heard. We are so blessed and comforted to know that she is forever in the joyful presense of the greatest most loving, amazing God. Thank you Jesus, for letting me be Mom’s daughter.
