Aunt Betty was and will always be a positive reminder of how life should be lived through all of us. Her funny personality and drive to helping others kept others around her in an uplifted spirit everyday.

Nell, Tom, Donna, Kim and family, she will be missed so much by all of us, but although we wonder about God's Path for those so close to us, he always carries a message in that path for us to follow. How wonderful that he brought her into our lives with so much love and we gave her back to him with so much more.

Love You All,

Kelli and Dennis

So sorry  to hear about Betty. I have known Betty most of my life and we had some fun times together in 4-H club and school. She was such a sweet person and was so kind to everyone. I hate that she had to go through a long battle but we can't predict the future. So glad that she had her family to support her. May God give peace and comfort to all of you at this time and the months and days ahead. Just cherish the memories that  all of you made with her and know that she is in a better place. God Bless all of you.

I am honored to have met Betty when I served as 2nd Vice President of MAOSC years ago.  I fondly remember her bubbly personality and I loved to listen to many of her memories as a Marine Corps Spouse.  My husband Chris and I extend our deepest condolences to all her family and friends.
