    I just connected again with your Mom after many years. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. She was so much fun to work with and we had plenty of laughs. Prayers that she is golfing with your Dad now. They did so much together and she spoke so highly of her family. She loved you all so much.

    She will be missed.

    I am filled with overwhelming sadness at your loss. Betty was a longtime cherished friend. We spent a day this past summer just laughing at shared adventures. She was a “gem”– a wonderful blessing to so many. She simply glowed telling stories of her grandchildren and great grandchildren . Wishing you peace and comfort at this difficult time. How each and every one of you was loved.

    Truly a great loss. Betty and Frank were the neighborhood parents welcoming all who came and many came. Betty loved her family, friends and just about everyone. She loved life always. God’s Blessing to the family. She will always be remembered and certainly missed.

  5. Noreen and Joe Buckley says:

    We are so very sorry for your loss. She was a special lady who had a knack for making people feel comfortable. We remember meeting her for the first time and after official introductions were done she said just call me Nin everyone else does!

  6. Juarez Gomes says:

    We met Betty and Frank in 2011, starting cleaning their unit at Mission Crossing since then, and she was a wonderful and thoughtful person always. She will be missed. Juarez and Beth.

  7. Marcia Grattan says:

    I am so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. Betty was a wonderful neighbor and friend.
    She was so nice and welcoming when I moved to Mission Crossing 3 1/2 years ago.
    We will all miss her.

  8. Kim & Les Bishop says:

    We have the fondest memories of Betty. She was a “Nin” to all the kids friends growing up, and we’ll always remember her for her love of her family and her amazing personality. Betty was always giving to someone, but our most recent memory of her helping out at the first aid table during the Parkinson’s Bike Race with her daughter Di especially sticks in my mind because it was just a couple of months ago. She never complained about the heat, and stayed until the end of the day. Betty wanted to be at both the starting and finishing line to watch her family ride. What impressed us most, is that she didn’t want to miss a thing when it came to the Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren. If an event was going on, and she could be there, she would. She will be so sorely missed by all that knew her. Our prayers are with both Scott & Linda and Di & Craig along with their loving families during this difficult week. Love, Kim and Les
