    Betty was so good to everyone. She was a blessing to my mom, who loved her very much. She took such good care of Elmer, and he cherished her very much. When Elmer, my brother, was so sick, she took such great care of him. I feel very blessed to have known her and there will always be funny stories to tell about her. She gave me one of her oil paintings which I have in my dining room, where I see and think of her often - RIP Betty, you are loved and you will be missed always.

    My sincerest condolences to the family. I knew Betty from Orange City Mobile Home Park and we got to talk from time to time. I hope these words will be of some comfort at this difficult time.

    "Those we love don't go away,
    They walk beside us every day,
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear."

    Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ~Matthew 11:28

    May you be comforted not only by your cherished memories of your Mom but also by our loving Father's peace and love.

    Eddie & Lynette, Your Mom loved our people well at Cypress Point... & she was also the most honest manager that's ever worked at Cypress Point. She could melt our golfers from around Central Florida with her kind, pretty smile, or support & care for some of our older residents ... (1John 4:12 - "If we love one another, God lives in us" )... Betty certainly loved us well!! ... she is now at peace. We love & miss our dear friend.

    God must have needed some help up there to have taken such a wonderful, loving, caring and giving mother, grandmother, sister and friend who was always thinking of and taking care of others, (especially her children), to have been taken from us so soon.

    Betty was a hard worker and was gifted with many talents and creativity. She could turn anything into a picture of beauty from her landscaping and interior decorating to her oil paintings.

    She was full of life and determination and was always busy with one project after another. If there was a way, she would find it.

    She loved her little dachshund and treated her like a human.

    I know that there will be a lot of PINK in heaven now that Betty's there and now when we see a beautiful PINK sunset we'll know that Betty painted it for us to enjoy.

    Betty was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed by all whose life she touched.

    Betty was the most special mom. She gave her love to everyone. She never asked for any thing from anyone, always her kids were first in her life. Mom never showed the pain or complained about it. Mom lived every day to the fullest. I miss her so much.
