Please accept my deepest sympathy on Betty's passing. I had the pleasure of working with Betty for several years at Peoples Trust Bank in Southgate Plaza.
Betty was always warm & friendly, hard-working & conscientious. She constantly wore a smile and had a ready infectious laugh. Her wit, humor and joy for life would light up a room. She could also sense when others were troubled and she was there to offer a shoulder to lean on and words of advice & encouragement. I know her kindness & compassion touched many people's lives including mine.

I love you Grandma! Thanks for all the wonderful memories and all the things you've taught me growing up. You are the best Grandma ever with the coolest personality on the planet.

Probably the coolest thing anyone has ever done for me was when you and Grandpa built an ice rink in our backyard to learn Hockey. I thank

Betty Lou always was smiling. I remember her coming to visit when I was very young and playing with me in the back yard of the little house on Sherwood. Also, Betty and Joe's wedding was the first wedding I remember that was really fun.
Betty Lou will always be remembered as a happy person with a good word for all. Heaven has a new smiling face.

Lisa, Steve, Alex, Noelle, Ryan, Abigail and all of the rest of Betty's family:
Dean and I send you our Deepest Sympathy, Love and Prayers.
At this very difficult time, and speaking from all to recent experiences-
the best thing you can do is hold onto each other; and continue to let your families grow from the love and examples your mom/grandma has shown you.
It will never be the same, but the memories and fun times will help to keep her
