Betty was well-known among family and friends for her wonderful heart. She was always doing for others. She was also well known for the love she had for her students. For 20 years she gave everything she had to making sure that her students had a good start to their education as well as teaching them about Jesus. She was held very highly in the hearts of her students and their parents for the love and attention she gave to each and every student in her class. Along with her students, she was blessed with lifelong friendships she made with parents and other teachers whom she loved dearly.
Betty had an unwavering faith and is now in God’s loving hands. She has been reunited with her true love and soul mate, her husband Lou.
