Deepest sympathy to Leroy, Patty, Lynn, Barb & all the rest of Betty’s Family. Betty was always making the most out of life. If it was traveling on motorcycle with Leroy or vacationing with Daughters, she would always be having fun. She enjoyed life to the most. Even in the hospital she would have a beautiful smile. Leroy & Family were the most important to her in if life. I was so fortunate to spend time with Betty. I am a long time best friend of Patty’s & we have so many memories of Laughing with them all. We will miss her forever. Now she is with Chris in Heaven, Smiling down on all. RIP Betty. -Cheryl Gillikin
