Betty was one of our favorite volunteers. Although she was available and engaged all year round, it was during kids grief camp that she shared her time and talents with pillow making. Each child was able to memorialize their loved one through pictures and words on their pillow. Betty was interactive with the kids, making their pillow making experience enjoyable.
My condolences to the Standford family
Always enjoyed working with her! My condolences to her family.
My condolences to Sue and family.
Sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. Worked with her on Bowman St. We wielded and spend hours together playing trivia. Remember her accident on the way to Illinois. And the heartbreak. We lost touch over the years. But she was a wonderful, fun lady. And will be fondly remembered ❤️
I worked with Betty and was a neighbor . She was a wonderful person. Condolence to her family.
So sorry to hear of your loss. May prayers and memories give you peace.
