My condolences go out to everyone. Betty was my godmother and a very generous and kind woman. I am happy to have been a part of her life and she always found a way to make me feel special. May she Rest In Peace

We are so sorry for your loss. Betty will always be remembered by us with her delightful smile in Lake Geneva. She was always so happy and proud of all her children and grand children; we were amazed she got them all straight and knew everything about each and every one that she loved so dearly.

Sorry for your loss our prayers are with you and the family.

While I did not know her very well, I know how much she was loved by her entire family. I also know she raised an unbelievable family as evidenced by their closeness and love for each other along with their individual successes. So sorry for your loss. Peace and Blessings.
