My very deepest sympathies to Gary, family, and friends. I only met Betty on a couple of occasions but heard a lot about her from Don. I know she was a warm and loving person and she will be greatly missed.

When I think of Betty I most often recall the happy memories that she would share with me of her humorous and sometimes mischievous adventures that she had with her siblings when they were just kids.
I know Betty will be missed by her family and by the many folks who's lives she touched. I was fortunate enough to become a part of the family by marrying her sister Sylvia whom we both loved with all our heart and who was the 'little sister' in most of the remembered 'adventures'. Hearing Betty's stories was always entertaining. I will greatly miss her and our many phone chats over the years.She was a wonderful sister-in-law.

My deepest sympathy to the family, Uncle Don
