Bettyrose was the anchor and backbone of her family. She never tired or avoided hard work and believed in constantly offering a helping hand, a kind word, or a loving and caring remark. Her beautiful
blue eyes and warm friendly smile settled arguments, assured you everything was fine and melted the hardest spirits. Her answer to every situation was a meal, dessert, or snack that was prepared with
pure love. She always made time for any family member and everyone on this earth was her family.
Betty was an accountant, seamstress, artist, carpenter, gardener and above all else a mother. She made sure no child or grandchild ever wanted for anything. Her willingness to always listen and not
judge but to offer an intelligent solution will never be replaced. This world has lost a lady in every sense of the word.
