Not sure what to say?

Betty was an amazing neighbor. Always had a smile and loved to joke around. She was in a book club with me and always had insights to share about what we were reading. I will miss her.

Dr. Schroeder was one of my favorite professors at NIU. I entered the CPS program and she taught us what we needed to pass the exam and more. She was a treasure and I know she will be dearly missed.

Betty was an active advocate for business education and active in the Illinois Business Education Association (IBEA). I first met her at an IBEA Fall Conference. She was an active member of IBEA serving in many leadership roles including President of our state organization in 1984-85. Marilyn L. Satterwhite, Past President of IBEA 2004-2005.

Dr. Schroeder was so kind. She really cared about her students. I remember going over to her house for the first time and meeting Barbie and TJ who were so young. She loved them so much. She didn't really know what she was doing, but she was willing to try. We discussed parenting along with course materials. We started our friendship in 1988, and we have remained friends to this day. She will be deeply missed by me and many others.

I wish you comfort and strength during this hard time. May the memories you have keep Betty in your heart forever❤Love to you and your family Barbie
