Betty was a lifelong Christian whose many passions included homemaking, sewing and crafting, interior decorating and devotion to church, family and friends. Being amongst the first foster parents in Placer County, she and Tom opened their home (on K Street in Lincoln for 39 years) and hearts to many young infants and countless teenaged friends of their children.
