  1. Our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Betty. Just thinking of Betty (my Great-Aunt) has always brought a smile to my face. She was one of my favorite role models growing up. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who loved her. Jamie Raehal (Harvey) and Family

  2. We understand the sorrow in the loss of life of a companion, a sister, a mother, or grand mother. The comfort of life everlasting eases that sorrow and for that we rejoice.
    May God bless the family and comfort them during this time of sorrow. We send our deepest sympathy to all. Fred and Gina Schulz

  3. I remember Betty as a vivacious, involved grandmother to my nephews and a kind, loving mother-in-law to my sister. Her acts of love and generosity were a witness of her Christian faith. My sincere sympathy to the family as you grieve her passing, yet rejoice with her over her promotion to heaven. April and Jim Faull
