My deepest condolences to the entire family! I remember her kindness as a childhood friend to her sons Charley and Jimmy. Take comfort in knowing she as at peace with other family members. Hopefully, this will provide you a measure of comfort in your time of loss. Again on behalf of my family, my deepest condolences. Your old friend, Ron Christopher

Chuck Thompson and I were childhood friends since before kindergarten. I remember the days we built hot rods out of orange crates and went racing down the driveway with no real brakes. Betty was very kind and gentle towards the kids in the neighborhood. I remember the squirt gun battles using her hand lotion pump bottles. She will always be remembered by me as a great Mom. My sympathies are with Chick, Jimmy and all the family on the loss of their Mother.May she rest in peace.
