Lisa, Jeff, Karisa. Kylee and JT : My Sympathy to you on the loss of your mother and grand mother. She was a wonderful lady. I always enjoyed seeing her. Always with a smile on her face! Sincerely, Ken Fraumann

Betty Wells was my "loneliness angel" when I moved to Attica to teach school back in the early 1970s. We met at church, and quickly struck up a long lasting friendship even though she was 26 years older than I. Many weekend days were spent with Betty attending auctions and shopping in Lafayette or visiting our friend Arletta Oland (who was older than both of us). Betty supported me in so many ways, and we had lots of fun together. I thank God for our 46 years of friendship -...

Laura and I were so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. At 96 I can only imagine what she saw in her life and the stories I'm sure she told you about those experiences. Those memories keep them in our hearts till we see them again.

Lisa and family,

So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was one of the sweetest ladies I knew. I have many fond memories from softball and Purdue womens basketball games. I hope the wonderful memories that you have will comfort you during this time and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Our family will pray for comfort during the celebration of the life of your loved one. Im sure she was will be missed by you and all the people she touched during her lifetime. Sincerely. Gary Wilson & family

I will always remember with love & gratitude that I got to know my Pine Village Pine Knots buddy-- even though it was a short time. We had fun singing the PV fight song & dancing on the Pickleball courts. Then we got to attend the PV Alumni that one time when her 3 fellow classmates were there from the 1940's. What a fun night. Brings a smile to my face when remembering. Such a beautiful lady. Love to all.

The few times I was around Betty what I remember was her beautiful smile. Thinking of Lisa, Jeff, and Family. Glenn And Cindy Whitaker

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Betty was a precious person who loved our Lord and showed that to everyone she knew. We remember her fondly. She always had kind words and a hug for us when ever we would meet. We know you will miss her dearly but find peace in the fact that you will one day see her again.

Betty was one of the most amazing ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I always enjoyed getting to talk with her when she walked through the alley behind our house to the store. I know you all will miss her but there is no doubt in my mind that you will see her again one day. To live in the hearts of others is never to die. Rest in peace sweet lady!
