Your mom attended our Bath United Methodist Church (as did your father). Your dad loved your mom very much. After his passing, Betty came with her daughter, Judy. Whenever I stopped to say good morning, Betty’s face would light up in a brilliant smile!
Thank you for letting me know you and your mom and what a great lady she is!
God bless you and your family at this time. Betty is missed.

We enjoyed being neighbors of Betty and Bill on Melody. We would get together with the Tanseys and have a good time.
Betty was a special lady who provided many valuable services to the Grand Ledge Schools.
