Betty was often described as beautiful and spry with a keenly witty sense of humor. She was a proud, "amazing woman" and enjoyed narrating humorous, sometimes heartfelt stories to those she loved and admired, accompanied by laughter, a good cup of coffee and a one of her favorites from a long list of deserts. Betty was a close confidant and life-long friend to those she knew and loved. Our fond memories of her will be forever cherished.
