  1. Robin and Family, Sorry for your loss. Betty was fun lady to talk to. Mike was on many a committee at church with her and always enjoyed working and talking to her. She will be missed.

  2. Robin, So sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a great lady and we loved getting to know her in our bible study with Dennis Buckley. Please accept our sincere sympathy in your loss.
    Love, Lee and Bev

  3. Robin, Betty will be missed , we had a lot of fun together and always had a big smile when she saw me. What a lovely lady. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Love Avis

  4. Robin,we always loved to see Betty. She brightened up the room with her smile. May God hold her close to Him. God Bless you and your son. Love Peg and Dick

  5. Robin – You know that you shared your mom with many of us. What a fun, intelligent, lady! I so enjoyed our Vegas trip and will always think of her on the bus ride from the Strip to Downtown. Never saw someone so sandwiched in and protected from toppling over at every stop! She loved participating in our many adventures and could keep up with anyone! I also admired her openness about her political leanings and her eye rolling whenever certain political families dominated CNN, She was a great friend to our mother and I know Vicki always considered herself to be Betty’s other daughter. The days ahead will be very difficult for you but you have a lifetime of memories of her love for you and her Riley, Peace be with you.
