    Our prayers are being sent to all of you that you will find comfort in all the memories you have of the wonderful times you have shared with Betty over the years. She will be missed by everyone who knew her whether as a mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt or as a friend. I will always remember her as the loving, caring spitfire of an Aunt that always made me feel special! We all love you Aunt Betty…you may have gone to be with our heavenly father but you will never be forgotten here on earth.

    So sorry to hear of the loss of such a wonderful woman! I loved John and Betty so much and can’t remember a time in my life where I didn’t see them out to dinner with my great grandparents! Truly she is in a much better place now and at peach in the arms of God! Will be keeping the entire family in my prayers!

    Rhett and I were sad to hear the news of Betty. We regret being unable to be there to pay our final respects, but our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. We will miss hearing from Betty and seeing her on our visits to Frankfort. I have always thought there were many things about Betty that reminded me of my Mother (her Aunt Edith), and I find it comforting to envision them re-united in heaven and sharing a laugh as I heard them do so often in life.
