We will miss Betty. Growing up the Hubbard kids and grand kids loved stopping by to see Mr. & Mrs Jameson and the horses. She was such a beautiful woman inside and out. Great neighbors to the entire Hubbard family. My dad had the priveledge of building her barn after the tornado and did so with love. We will miss you Betty.

Vickie, Judy, and Family. Betty was a kind, caring and amazing lady who will be missed by all. I have great memories of growing up across the street from your family. Betty was a wonderful friend to my mom and helped mom get through many tough times after dad passed away. She was a true friend!! I really enjoyed reconnecting and visiting with Betty at Lutheran Living when in Muscatine to visit mom. One time we were sitting together, Betty, my mom Norma, and me and I asked Betty if she remembered going to the gravel pit years ago and she and mom would sun bathe while us kids splashed around in the water. Betty smiled and replied, "Yes, I remember." Then she grabbed mom's hand and said, "and we are going sun bathing again some day." That is probably my favorite recent memory of Betty. She talked a little about Russell different times and I knew she missed him greatly. And Betty always talked about her girls. Below is my favorite saying and I hope these words will give you comfort at this time of your loss: WHEN SOMEONE YOU LOVE BECOMES A MEMORY, THE MEMORY BECOMES A TREASURE!" Hang on to your memories. You have our deepest sympathies for your loss. May Betty rest in peace.
She was a very dedicated woman to the horse industry. The amount of kids and adults she taught was amazing.If you wanted to start your kid or even improve yourself she was the name that always came up. You never cut corners with Betty.Sorry for the loss of a great horsewoman and ride the heavenly sky.
Judy, Vickie, and family: I have so many fond memories of you Mom, as she treated me like one of her daughters. I learned so much from her and enjoyed our many chats at the barn. May all your loving memories sustain you in the days to come and may you continue on with her legacy. Love,
Rhonda McMahon Wittmer
I love you and will miss you great grandma
Will love you always and always miss you mom
Judy and Vickie and families,
Betty taught me the importance of having good neighbors. When she lived on Grover, she was a good example of how neighbors take of each other. She also taught me the importance of hard work and loving with a passion as I watched her day in and day out give riding lessons, work with her horses and her students and be passionate about life in general. Thank you for being a good teacher and neighbor.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
Lori and Kevin Hubbard
