If you knew our mother then you know there will be no service, but we can celebrate her life well lived. We ask you just simply to lift her up in thought and prayer. If you desire to make a donation in her memory, we can suggest two:

The Virgin Valley Community Food Bank,

c/o Gladys Smith, 1427 Harbour Dr, Mesquite, NV 89027

St John's Lutheran Ministries, 3940 Rimrock Rd, Billings, MT 59102.

Betty loved living in Mesquite, NV and she loved being part of The Thrift Shop Girls. She loved lunches with her girlfriends and reading good paperbacks. And she loved her dog…Dirty Harry.

….What she didn't like was someone to notice her. But we did and her beautiful spirit will stay with us always.
