I got to know Betty when I worked at the Lima Municipal Court. She was so helpful and friendly. I will fondly remember her and express my sympathies to her family and friends.

We met Betsy when Mira, our granddaughter and Betsy's great-niece, made her First Communion. We commented to each other at the time that Betsy was lively and entertaining to be around, and what a pleasure it was to share a meal with her and the family. What a blessing for all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with this sweet and positive woman! Our sincere condolences go out especially to the family, particularly Mira, Kristyn and Karen. We hope that soon they will be able to reflect on how happy they felt in Betsy's presence and know that Betsy would want them to celebrate her life by continuing to feel the joy she brought to them.

Betty, thanks for the twenty years I was able to receive your beautiful friendship of laughter and strength...When you asked, "How are you doing?", you meant it...Thanks for being the first to celebrate personal good times and the first to fight for those around when chips were down...You made every room you were in a place of welcome...You never failed to see the bright side...You never asked for anyone's pity when the inevitable ups and downs of life hit You...You are a true Warrior and your faith continues to shine as an example...Love and Respect.

I met Betsy when I was about ten years old. Her family and my family lived on Ft. Amanda Road. There were three farm fields and a church between our houses. I got to know she and her family after they left St. Charles School and started attending Shawnee Elementary School (my school at the time). It seems that during my childhood and early teen years, I played mostly with her sister Mary Ann. When Betsy and I were in our late teens and early 20s, however, we became very good friends. Her brothers and sisters and I all had nicknames. She was Hobbs and I was Boa. As Hobbs and Boa, we did lots of things together: we shopped together at Greggs department store in downtown Lima, sunbathed using butter as our tanning lotion, rode the family tractor, and took long automobile drives at sunset to watch the sun go down (Betsy drove her car). As teenagers--maybe into our early 20s, she worked at RInks Bargain City and I worked at Woolworths in the Lima Mall. We would often get together at the end of our shifts and cruise North Street in Lima before she took me home. I remember we always used to like to hear the song "Soul Deep" as we cruised. (We are probably the only two who remember the song.) Our friendship didn't end when Donnie came along. In fact, I was a bridesmaid in their wedding. Our lives did take different paths. I moved out of the area, and as adults we seldom saw one another. I don't remember ever arguing with her. Their was always laughter between us. I can close my eyes and see her smiling face. I and my brother Tom wish to remember her. Goodbye, dear Hobbs. Boa
