Betty traveled extensively during her lifetime, mainly as a Navy wife. She was known for her beautiful voice, cooking delicious food, and entertaining friends and family. She took great joy in her family and often said that she had a good life. She lives on forever in all our hearts.

The family wishes to thank ALL of the incredibly wonderful angels at The Village of Summerville where Betty lived happily for the past 5 years as well as the comforting staff of Bayada Hospice who cared for her this past month.
