I worked with Ms. Betty several years ago at the old Rodgers Hospital. I was a Ward Clerk,Student Nurse then a L.P.N., I was a young girl at the time and she took very good care of me. Then several years later I was in the St. Vincent Hospital as a patient and I received the same special treatment I had previously received from her--she thought I was too thin and fed me like a Queen, if she could only see me now! She was a wonderful lady and one that I loved very much! My thoughts and prayers are with you at this heartbreaking time. I can feel your pain as I lost my mother in 1998. Prayerfully yours. Trudy Langley.

Betty took care of me when I was a little girl in Searcy. She helped mold my life. She was a very special person in my life. I loved her very much.

We are very sorry to hear of Aunt Betty's passing. We know she missed having Lois in her daily life. We can only hope that they are reunited in Heaven and rejoicing that they are together again.

We will keep the family in our prayers.
