|Much Love to you all. I remember Aunt Betty's laugh...she was always in a good mood. It was also really cool to tell people that Elizabeth Taylor was my aunt. I hope during this time you all can take comfort in knowing she is home with The Lord and her family. Aunt Betty and Uncle Don are together again. Blessings.|
|Aunt Betty was fun.! Debbie Joe and I spent hours playing together in those summers when we visited our family in KY and OH. Lots of laughs and happy times. I also got to spend some one-on-one time with Aunt Betty when Aunt Pat was sick. It wasn't a happy time because of the surrounding circumstances, but getting to know her better was the bright spot there. Aunt Betty, you are and will be missed. Rest Well.|
|Betty was so sweet! On an overnight in the 1950's, she introduced me to "pizza"! Life hasn't been the same since!!! Peace to your family.|
|Debbie and Faye, Love and prayers to you and your families.|

|Betty was our wonderful neighbor. We enjoyed being with her and helping her any way we could. She appreciated the smallest gestures. We loved her and will miss her. Debbie, you had a remarkable mother.|
|Debbie and Tony my condolences on the passing of your mother and grandmother. She and Don were always wonderful to be. She always remember my birthday in a special way. She and I were together for 27 years. I thank her for those years she will always have a special place in my heart.|
|To Debbie Jo and the family; my deepest condolences upon the passing of such a Special Lady. My prayers are with you all. My earliest memories of my Aunt Betty go back to a very early age when Aunt Betty and Uncle Don were living in their first home in Hamilton. But most of my memories come from family picnics, holiday parades, and my favorite, Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas Family Dinners at Aunt Betty’s and Uncle Don’s home on Teri Court. Once you celebrated and enjoyed holiday functions and dinners at Aunt Betty’s you would compare all others to hers. She was truly blessed with the gift of hospitality. Throughout the years no matter where I celebrated the holidays I always thought of my Aunt Betty and how she always made everyone feel so special at her dinners and so welcome in her home. Many have been blessed to have known such a Wonderful Lady, (2 Corinthians 5:8).|

|Aunt Betty was special. I used to love to visit aunt Betty as a teenager. We had such interesting talks when we spent time together or talked on the phone, even when she was in the nursing home. My memories of many Christmas's and Thanksgivings and Easters will be in my mind and heart forever. No one like her. She believed that love is here & now, real & true, the most important thing in the world. She had a radiance that never faded. I will always, truly love Aunt Betty. Condolences to you Debbie. She loved you so. Linda|
|Childhood memories at Aunt Betty's… Formal dining was like a five star restaurant…and pizza! Aunt Betty always had a craft or a game to keep us kids occupied. No doubt to keep myself, Wayne, Gary, Dennis, Vic, Jeff and Billy from tearing the place up. Anyone remember playing croquet on Oakmont? Jumping off the 20' platform at Lesourdville Lake? Once I asked Uncle Don how a TV works. Over the course of a weekend, he told me in detail…Snore When all of the sisters got together, hilarity ensued. Her everpresent cackling laughter will be missed. "A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again.” – Maya Angelou|
|Debbie Jo, Sad to hear of Aunt Betty's passing, but joyful that she is with Lord. What a talented person she was. She was the Hostess with the Mostest. Her Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner presentations were straight out of Currier & Ives. For all of my childhood and into adulthood Aunt Betty's house was the place to be for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And her artistic abilities were so impressive. One of her paintings hangs in my home to this day. I'm sure the Lord will use her talents in those "feasts" we will enjoy in Heaven.|
