I worked with Betty at Dover Goodwill starting in 1995. I fondly remember her and will never forget how funny and beautiful she was. I was only 18 yrs old and she taught me so much. Betty retired many years ago and I still continue to work for Goodwill. Prayers for the family.

When I saw the picture i thought I know her. Then i read it and then I knew it was from the Goodwill. Have shopped with her as the checkout or stocker many a time. May she R.I.P.
