I came to know Betty through her husband Dale, who taught Auto Mechanics at Stebbins High School. He was an excellent teacher, having worked at the Xenia Ford Dealership, and Betty fully supported him in his work. Betty was always cheerful, positive, up-beat and loved to laugh. I shall miss her positive personality and her sense of humor.

She was a wonderful caring woman. I knew her at GMH while I was working at the hospital.

My father, Harry Kremer, worked in Tech Photo with Betty for many years. I used to attend their retirees luncheons at Clancy´s with my parents and became friends with both Betty and Mutt. I remember Betty as a beautiful, petite lady with blue eyes that danced when we all giggled at a joke over lunch. I enjoyed sending her funny holiday cards and hearing her laugh during our phone calls. She was so proud of her sons and grandchildren and spoke of them often. She was certainly one of a kind and will be truly missed. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
