  1. My Aunt Betty was married to my dad\’s younger brother. She was one of my favorite aunts. I always enjoyed visiting with her. When I was very young, Aunt Betty told me that we were kindred spirits because her birthday was the day before mine. That made a shy little girl feel very special. But, that\’s the kind of warm person she was. I loved to listen to her. She was one of the most interesting people I\’ve ever known. Her loss will forever be felt by me. I loved her very much.

  2. Dearest Family I am so saddened by your(our)lose.She to me was one of the kindest persons I have ever known and loved.We did\’nt see a lot of her,but when we did it lasted in our memory forever. I will always love and remember her and I\’am glad she has Mom and Dad to be there with her…

  3. I remember when I first got married to Jon and Betty told me she was so happy to have another female in the family that was not a Trull. We became good friends and I always felt very close to Betty. I will miss her. I am just glad she is no longer in pain. Love Vickie

  4. Betty was a good friend for over 30 years. I will always remember her for her laughter and kindness. She was a help to any who needed her. I will miss her.

  5. I remember Betty being there for my mom when my little brother was born, she helped my mom alot while mom was sick. She was also there to help me when my eldest daughter was born. Betty was a great friend to my family for many years. We will all miss you.

  6. Aunt Betty and I were “middle” children in our families, and she always understood how I felt. My favorite memories were taking trips with her, especially camping trips when I was young. My Mom and Aunt Betty would laugh like young girls, and talk into the night. She was such a wonderful woman and will be missed forever.

  7. We had fun together. While I was married to Carl, Betty, Jack & girls would come over & we would play cards together & make tacos to eat. If she had any problems, we\’d talk them over and she was there for me when Carl died & to help me make arrangements. She was more than a sister-in-law to me. I sure miss her.

  8. I still can\’t believe I won\’t see her again in this life. I have lots of memories with Aunt Betty. A neat one is the time mom and she and I took my little mustang and headed for the mountains for a cool weekend retreat, only to find out there were no vacancies to stay in Arrowhead area. So we just took all our heavy coats and clothes and went to Palm Springs instead. As soon as we got our motel, we went shopping for cooler clothes for the weekend. We hiked, swam, and had a ball. That was nearly 40 years ago! I always felt her love and hope she felt my love returned to her. “Marie”
