    Betty was a wonderful lady. I can remember her altering and sewing outfits for me. A special outfit was a formal I wore at Purdue to a Navy Ball, and received many compliments. I know this is a difficult time. It is my hope that your special memories will comfort you. Take care and God Bless.

    I’m very sad!! Aunt Betty was my last connection to the Barnett family. She will be remembered as a caring, loving lady. My prayers are for you two girls. She is in a better place and I’m sure she had lots of caring people greeting her when she arrived.
