I remember Betty from the family get togethers at my uncle Glenn and aunt Gerry Lackender's farm at Christmas time and other occasions as well. Betty always had a big smile and a quick wit and was fun to be around. Our condolences to her family at this time.

My brother Julius and I remember going to Aunt Betty's house ever Christmas break for a sleepover with Rick. One of the activities we did every year was play a big game of Monopoly with Aunt Betty. They were fun, long, winter night's rolling dice hoping to win the big game!

CandleSending my sympathy to Betty’s family. Betty & my mom sat at the same table for meals at Colonial Manor so I got to know Betty a little bit. She seemed to always know when certain activities were & I think she looked forward to them. Sometimes she’d be working on a word puzzle while they were waiting for their meal to be served. I remember how excited she was for her last birthday. She told me her family was coming for a party. The last time I saw her she was enjoying some time outside with other residents. She asked me to get her a snack out of her bag on the back of her wheelchair. I was happy to be able to help her. I will miss seeing her when I go visit my mom. I think my mom will miss her too.
