Betty was a big encouragement to both of us. You and Chuck always believed in us. Trudy and Guy you are in our prayers.

I now live in Arizona but have learned of Betty's passing. So very sorry to hear of this. She was such a friendly, beautiful lady. I worked with her and Chuck at ESCO for several years and played cards with her. I know she will truly be missed.
