Betty was a very caring person, a great mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. Although she was a very private person, when I saw her she always had a big smile and was ready to talk for a while. Her daughter Laura is married to my son David so we share the same grandchildren and great grandchildren, which was the subject of our conversations. God bless you Betty, may you rest in peace. Your friend Pat
