Memories Timeline


  1. Hi, To the Cape family:
    I am so sorry to hear about your mother, Betty. I had requested her often to substitute for me @ Central. I last ran into her, at Jorge’s, she had that happy smile. I’m sure i had met you, that day Ken. She was a very nice lady, a great secretary & did a great job. I will miss her dearly. Please know, your family is in my thoughts & prayers during this difficult time. Cathy Montoya

  2. It was an honor to care for her and prepare her for her golfing outings. Such a joy to know in this way. God Bless and comfort you.

  3. On behalf of Betty Jean’s remaining members of her 1955 Central High School classmates, we wish to express our sympathies and condolences to her family and to her close friends. We remember her for how she easily befriended us, how she loved her music and how she exhibited her school spirit. It was a pleasure to have known her. Sadly, we ’55ers are rapidly losing our mates, and each one departing reminds us again of our own mortality. Would that we all would have lived a life as well as she did.

  4. Kenny and Floyd, I am so sorry for your loss. Betty Jean was a good aunt and I always enjoyed so much when our families would get together. May God bless!

  6. Betty Jean and I became friends when I moved into her neighborhood a few years ago. I loved the visits with her and Abe. I enjoyed hearing her talk of her family, baby Jeanine, and all the fun she had with the car club. I’m sure going to miss my feisty little friend.

  14. Betty Jean and I have been good friends for many years. We came to know each other through out husband’s interest in Model Ts. We went on many tours together, hosted Model T breakfasts, and numerous other Model activities. She was a very active person and had me golfing with her and her friends, doing yoga and water exercises, and a lot of riding bicycles together. I feel fortunate that she was my friend and will treasure our good times together . Now she is in her happy place with Sonny.

  16. I will always remember dear Betty Jean with such a sweet fondness. Although her sons and I attended Central together, it wasn’t until I was teaching there that I met this fun and energetic lady. Betty often substituted for our secretaries and she was always so pleasant and delightful to students, parents and staff. I loved visiting with her. She was so interesting and uplifting. Stopping by whatever desk she was sitting behind, for a little chat, was always such a pleasant opportunity. My condolences to her family and friends and thank you, Betty Jean, for every great smile and the numerous pleasant exchanges you so generously gave to all of us.
