I extend my condolences to Betty’s family. Betty is now at peace. May God give you all the strength, courage and grace to accept her passing. I went to school with Betty; Class of ’61. She was such a fun-loving lady! I also worked at the Pioneer. Saw Betty a few years ago (before her illness took her away) and she had the biggest smile and warmest heart as always. Cherish to good memories and keep them in your heart!
