What a wonderful person she was. She and Jim were family friends of my parents and we spent a fair amount of time together when I was young. I have the best memories of her as a gracious and warm, sincere, genuine and caring person. They were a wonderful couple. May she rest in heavenly peace and enjoy the the reunion with of Jim, Nyla and our loving and merciful Lord for ever and ever. With heartfelt condolences to her family.

Betty was my house mother at Alpha Omicron Pi. She was a wonderful woman who helped me through a very hard time in my life. I will be forever grateful to her. She will be dearly missed.
