I had the honor of being Betty’s great nephew. She was so full of life and loved her family more than anything. I will miss you so very much aunt Betty and I look forward to seeing you again. Love you so so much. Rest in heavenly peace to the strongest Christian woman that walked this earth. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Betty, will be so missed by many. She and her family were our neighbors on Gwathmey Road and I had the privilege of babysitting for her boys and Patricia. I remember she was beautiful and kind to everyone. I always thought she looked like Elizabeth Taylor.
She had many losses and with her faith managed to survive. She was always there for her family. She is now reunited with those she lost during her life.
God gained a beautiful Angel. Rest well dear Betty!
Thank you for Patricia who is now a dear friend.
Prayers for all family and friends who all will miss her on this side of heaven. 😘😘🙏🙏
