I feel truly blessed to have had such a wonderful great-aunt in my life. So many of my childhood memories include her. As a child, I once told someone at a yard sale that I had good training (from my Nanny and Aunt Betty). She was knowledgeable on many subjects and told the best stories. Her zest for life was beautiful. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her. Aunt Betty, thank you for always being vibrant and authentic. I hope heaven has purple pants, thrift stores, and gardens filled with your favorite things. We love you and will miss you greatly.
Craig and Pam, We knew this day would come, but not really. Betty was always so upbeat, loving and positive in every way. I’ll always remember our many flea market trips to find things we did not know we needed, as Betty would explain to each of us the item’s usefulness. Betty loved working in her garden and rescuing many animals over the years. Her love, appreciation of and trust in the two of you grew stronger every day. Now she can finally rest on Earth, but have eternal fun in Heaven!
