Kathy, Sharon, and families,

Hearts are heavy in the Shields home after learning the news of Betty's passing. Everyone that knew Betty was blessed by her. As a family, we were lucky to be able to call her a friend; the relationships built out of Wooster Community Hospital Dietary are lifelong and very special. Even though the days of baking Christmas cookies in the Taylor basement are in the past, the memories of Brian's humor, Blaine's quick wit, and Betty's warmth and kindness will endure with all of us who knew them. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.

All our love,
Mark, Bonnie, Courtney and Carri

Many caring thoughts and prayers are with you.
So many happy memories of Aunt Betty Lou ..
she was a very kind and sweet person ..

She was the sweetest lady and always made our activities at the retirement home fun! I missed her so much when she moved out of our building. I can still hear her laugh and know she loved her friends and family dearly.
