To Betty's family,
Betty was a good gal. I have known her for years. I remember all the times I visited with her, grandma Rose, and Virginia in the kitchen at the Kallenberger house when I was growing up. Good memories. Betty was blessed to have her niece Linda and husband Bill to watch over and care for her.
