  1. My Beautiful Grandmother, you was loved by so many. It makes me happy every day that I was blessed enough to have you in my life for 47 years. All ways my rock. When I needed advice. Taking me to Dr appointments. Helping me learn to cook after I had gotten married. So many great memories. I hope that I can be as great of a Grandmother to my grandkids as you was to me. I strive to be just like you. I love you so much! I will miss you more than anyone will ever know. You were and still are my ROCK.

  2. Best neighbor ever. She would make me a pie after a hospital stay. Made with crackers but tasted just like pecan pie. Always lots of fun. B. F. also. AND, of course all those cute (ornery) kids. Love and sympathy to all of you.

  3. Best second Mom ever. She was always up for the task of keeping Ann and I in line. Heaven just got a very special angel.

  4. So sorry for your loss. She was a sweet lady Prayers and hugs for all your family love Tommy and Mary Vanover🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  5. We loved Betty and she was a wonderful blessing and I have fond memories of her at school. We have and enjoyed seeing her on Sundays. She will be so missed prayers.

  6. So sorry- Betty was always smiling. She was a worker, and was a super cook. Christmas wasn’t Christmas without Betty’s cookies ‼️
