    I remember working with Betty at Memorial Medical Center in Ashland. I was a brand-new nurse in 1979 and I worked with Betty on the second floor. She was always so pleasant and kind to work with and was a good role model for me as I began my nursing career. My sympathy goes out to the family at this time. God be with you.

    I have loved Big Betty for over 60 years, and all of her children. Jane was my best friend for years, and all of her sibs were treasured friends also. We had such a great childhood relationship – no words can replace that time. We have had an unforgettable time, and our parents were an integral part of our continued relationship. It will always be an unforgettable piece of my past.
