Our thoughts and prayers are with the Fargo and Shiffer families. Aunt Betty lived a long and event filled life. Our remembrances of her were formed over summer vacations spent in Tunkhannock where she graciously shared her home and her love with us. May the good Lord bless her and keep her and may the family rejoice in a life well lived.
