We're so sorry to hear at the loss of Betty.
Geeze, I can't remember what year it was but she knew my (Laura) mother, Beryl and then me.
We'll keep her family in our prayers. laura

Praying for all so sorry .may God see you all through this
And help you all be strong as days go by .Rip.Betty

REST IN PEACE Betty, you will be greatly missed by all of your loving family and many friends. We had some wonderful times together, and I will miss my (other) Mom. Sending Love and Prayers too all of his family and friends.

Sorry to hear about Aunt Betty's passing. I will be praying for all of you. Aunt Betty was a Spunky Gal and will be missed greatly.

Betty left us way to soon and we will miss her very much. She and I had many good times over the years but 2020 was not a good year. Not long ago we went to Shreve to eat and most recently we went to the MGM Casino and stopped for Breakfast at Cracker Barrel on the way. She was always there when you needed her, and it will be so hard without her. I loved her and will always love her, she will be in our hearts and our memories for ever.

To the family of Betty Jane my heart goes out to you all. I pray that God would wrap his loving arms around each and everyone of you. I pray that you would find peace and comfort when you reflect on all your wonderful memories of her. And that the love of God would overtake you and that you would have joy knowing that she is safe in his arms. I love you all.
sincerely Sherry Wright
