Betty spent all her life in the hills that she was raised in. She had a love of gardening and a love of baking and cooking. Betty was not happy unless she was feeding you. She dedicated most of her career to taking care of the elderly and then, at the age of 50, decided to become a hairdresser.

In lieu of flowers, we as a family would ask you to go say hello to your neighbor take a sit on their porch and shoot the bull for a minute. Our mother loved her neighbors and they loved her. She will not only be missed by all of us, but her little street will not be the same without her.
Friends and family will be notified of a celebration of life at a later date
