Betty was a beautiful and hard working woman with a heart of gold. She and dad shared 64 beautiful years of marriage together. Betty enjoyed crocheting and going to the casino. We always loved when she made her famous green jello and rice pudding. She always enjoyed and loved talking to people, and was always there for all of us giving us great advice. Betty also had a unique sense of humor, always said what she thought, and always said “the truth is the truth”. She loved lighting Saint candles for the people she was praying for.
