Paul and I offer out warmest sympathy for Bettys family and friends. We knew her best as Brians mom. From the first time we met her, she treated us as though we had been friends for years. She always made us feel as though we were special. She was a dear lady and will be deeply missed by her family, her friends, her church, and her community.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Betty. I have always thought the world of her. She was definitely a child of our Lord. I remember the last time I saw her at her granddaughter's fastpitch softball game. she gave me the biggest hug; which I will always remember.

I will always remember Betty from my very 1st day volunteering at Clear Creek. We enjoyed our volunteer hikes together(back country, winter and dog) and sharing events happening in our bluebird boxes or stories of our other individual. adventures hiking around the area. I was always amazed at how long, far and fast she hiked even at twice my age. It was delightful visiting her at LanFair and at Carroll Place. She always had a smile on her face, and you could not help feel joy in her presence. A truly beautiful Christian woman. My heartfelt condolences for each and every one of her family and friends. May she rest in the peace of God's loving arms.

What a blessing Betty was to so many over the years! She had a terrific smile and showed the love of Jesus to so many in her lifetime. While she will be greatly missed by those left behind I am sure the Lord will say to her, Well done, good and faithful servant as He meets her in heaven.

My heartfelt condolences to Greg, Cheryl, Brian, and Brett. I attended church with your mother for years and was inspired by her relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ. The best story I can tell you is this, your mother was the first person( with smiling face) I saw when I turned around after being saved at the alter. Enough said !!!!!!!!!! Carol loved picking strawberries with your Mom at her aunt Roxie's patch.
