Both the LaConto's (Betty & Bob) were great friends of my parents and I am so sorry to hear of Betty's passing. I send my best thoughts to the Laconto family. She will be missed
Your mom/grandmother and I taught 1st grade together back in 1985 at Tyler School. It was my second year of teaching and I had never taught first grade before. I was so nervous! She was a wonderful teacher, mentor and friend. She shared so many important suggestions about teaching and her guidance is some of what made me the teacher I am today. I can still see her smile and hear her laugh. She was a very special person and I will never forget her or her influence on me. You have my deepest sympathies. I hope your memories bring you peace.
What an honor to have worked with Betty. She had a great sense of humor and the couarge of her convictions to do what was right for the children of DeKalb. Her legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of her many students. I am sorry for your loss.
Our children were fortunate in having Betty and Donna Bennett for full days of kindergarten. Betty was a wonderful, caring, sensitive teacher with a lovely sense of humor. We were sad to read the news of her passing.
I miss you grandma. You were my best friend since I was born. We loved the same things and I couldn't wait till I could see you again. It seems unreal that you could be gone so fast.I miss the yahtzee games and the mile borne. I treasured the time we had together. You made my days brighter and your memory fills me with your unconditional love.You were more than a grandmother you were my best friend and I will love you always. Rip Grandma
