Steve and Tim and families,
Betty was always a joy to be around. I still cam remember her laugh like it was yesterday.
Every trip we to Attica always included driving by Chet and Betty's house and looking to see if they were home.
May you find peace and comfort knowing that your mom and dad are in heaven together.

Steve & Tim,
My sincerest condolences on your mom's passing. I have nothing less than joyful memories of being with your mom & dad. Esp there were a few years in the '70's when my mom & dad & I would stop in Attica on Christmas Eve for church services and then a gathering at your folks house with some of their friends. What sweet & truly funny people your folks and their friends were. The memory lives on.

So sorry to hear about Betty’s passing. I remember stopping by her home when I was younger. She and Chet were always so cheerful. They would come out to our farm too. Rest In Peace Aunt Betty
