Such a wonderful lady. Always had a smile and kind words. She will be missed. I enjoyed seeing her weekly at the hospital when we would have lunch before we went to volunteer.

I am so so sorry to hear about her passing. I have done her every Friday at 10:00 for many years. She was a great friend to me and she even took me to mass one Sunday and one night we went to dinner. I an so glad I hugged her twice last Friday when she left my shop. Doing her for the last time will be how I can honor her one more time.

I'm so sorry for her passing. She was my favorite aunt and she was always very pleasant to be around. My favorite memories were as a child and running down the alley from grandma's to visit at your house and that one summer when I got to stay a whole week. Freddy and I got to engage in a lot of mischief and also got to explore the haunted house that was across the street at that time. Aunt Betty had a lot of patience with us and didn't even yell too loud at us when she came out and found a piece of chewed bubble gum in the crushed ice of the snow-cone machine we had running that day to sell snow-cones. We had plans on putting the gum in the next persons snow-cone that we sold. I'm glad now that she caught us. Her smiling face will greatly be missed by us all. - Dick
