I had the blessed pleasure of knowing Betty. She touched the lives of me and my children. She ALWAYS loved giving hugs and that smile was so bright all the time! She helped me in my walk with the Lord and for that, I am forever grateful. She taught me that being loving and kind always is so important, no matter what the circumstance. God was her go-to, her Rock, her Savior. And she would not want us sad because SHE is happy in Heaven with Jesus!
My aunt Betty was a great woman she was the rock of our family she was outstanding aunt mother grand mother. Amd great grandmother to so many she was stubborn but had a heart of gold she will mised by so many we love her prayers to all her childern and family.
She was such an amazing lady, even though she thought I should wait to get married Aunt Betty supported my choice and hand made my wedding dress in 2003 it was a perfect and beautiful. Thank you Aunt Betty for your love support and care through my stupid and young days!! You will be deeply missed! Rest in peace love you so much. Amanda Winkle
Where do I begin. Betty got Deanna and I interested in 4H. Deanna and I.We went to see a drive in movie with Bill And Bernie., Betty came along since she was older. Betty sewed doll clothes. She loved her family. A Christian. She had a great laugh. Our deep sympathy to the family.
There are so many special moments spent with Betty and her daughters. She always made me laugh and we always made her laugh tell her stomach hurt. She always called us crazy girls. Her light may be out but her love will last forever and each one of us. God bless you sweetie
