I am so sorry to know that Aunt Betty has passes away. She will be missed by many. We drifted apart, but that happens when family are apart. She will be in my prayers. My health is not as good as I wood like and do not feel at ease traveling so far. She and you are in my prayers. I am having a perpetual enrollment of a Mass set up for her. Sincerely.

I had the pleasure of working with Betty many years at The Signal in Canal Fulton. She was always upbeat, pleasant, cheerful and nary a negative comment about anyone else. Betty always had a laugh and smile. I will miss her. God Bless. H.Allen Etling.
