I worked at ‘Joes’ at the time Betty lost her dear son Joe and I stayed on to help her through. Betty was a fire to be recond with and a heart of gold. I will never forget her strength. Peace for all her family.

I’m sorry to hear of your loss. Betty was a bright and cheerful person to everyone. I recently drove up over Burg and wondered about her. I had no contact numbers so I said a little prayer that all is well. I know you are blessed with many good memories…..what a blessing!!!

I remember Betty being so nice when I would see her at Taylor’s drug store. I later became good friends with Joe and got to know Betty and Amos personally. Both were fine people and Betty will be missed by by all. God bless Betty.
