Our Mom was tired, the many trips to the hospital had worn her out, and on February 8th she took her last treatment. For 15 days she visited with family and friends, and she left us on the 16th morning. She will be greatly missed, but we know she is with our loved ones in heaven. We love you Mom & Grandma, Your Family."

Have a lot of fun memories of my Aunt Betty.times when we all went fishing or go play bingo or just go on the boats and have fun for a couple hours playing slots hoping that one of us will hit the big jackpot or the times as a kid growing up just going over there to Aunt Betty and uncle Jim's for Christmas or Thanksgiving or vice versa those are some fun times and fun memories which I will always remember but my most memory of all is when my dad died her and Uncle Jim gave me a big old hug before I left that day to go home and I will always remember that.RIP Aunt Betty your pain is no more.
