Betty was always ready with a smile that would make you feel loved. There were no strangers, just friends she hadn’t met yet. She had a generous soul and was kind to everyone she met.
Betty’s daughters and grandchildren lit up her life with pure joy. She cherished every moment loving them and cheering every milestone they achieved. She taught them all what it means to love and be loved and they each carry her spirit within themselves. Every member of her family was blessed to be loved by her.

Betty was a life long Catholic and believed that there is a special place in heaven where we will meet all of our loved ones again. Until then,
“See You When I’m Looking At You”
“See You, Love You, Bye…”
