She was a fabulous cook and baker and she enjoyed caring, cooking and feeding her large family. Betty's family always came first, whom she loved unconditionally.

    Please know you have all been in my thoughts and prayers. Your precious Mother had a long, hard fight, but she is finally at peace. I know how difficult it has been for all of you.
