Bette was a great person and always helped young people as they entered the field of banking. I remember her well as I worked in her bookkeeping department when I joined the management training program at First National Bank. If there was a problem or concern all anyone had to do was ask her. She knew the procedures and operations of the bank and who for making things right. We worked together for 31 years. She was such a pleasant person to be around. To her family, I wish you the best in adjusting to your loss. She was such a caring individual and someone that I will always remember.

Bette was my first supervisor at First National Bank in 1973. She taught me a lot about Bookkeeping and Customer Service. She was a very dedicated worker and did not mind teaching the young employees. She loved her family. She made the best stawberry cake, I have never had one as good as hers. My condolences to her family, I know she will be missed.
