    Betty was a fine Christian woman whom I had the pleasure of working with for over 17 years. There was never a cross word between us and she taught me the love of doing a crossword puzzle. I truly admired her. She was humble, kind and loved her family so much. I know she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. She can now stroll over Heaven with Haston, the love of her life.
